Did you know that Champions for Children relies on private donations from friends like you in order to deliver our child abuse prevention and family education programs to Tampa Bay families? 

These are difficult times for families in our community. If you are among those fortunate enough to have means as we head into this holiday season, perhaps you are considering how you can best help our neighbors who are struggling right now. This week, we hope you’ll take just a few moments to read about how you can make a significant and lifelong impact on thousands of Tampa Bay families by making a donation to Champions for Children.

Why is it important to support Tampa Bay families now

Financial strain, isolation, and stress go hand-in-hand with increased risk of child abuse and neglect. Due to the pandemic, countless families are struggling with these challenges at higher levels and for more sustained periods than ever. Once it occurs, the negative impacts of child abuse and neglect are long-lasting, difficult to reverse, and ultimately borne by our entire community. By investing in the well-being of children and families today, we can ensure a safe childhood for every child and a brighter future for Tampa Bay.

Why should I give to Champions for Children?

As one of the only organizations in the state of Florida to focus exclusively on the prevention of child abuse and neglect through family education, Champions is uniquely positioned to recognize and address the risk factors that are affecting families right now. We are providing virtual family education, resources like WiFi and baby supplies, and one-on-one support for any family in Hillsborough County who needs it. All of these services are free, ensuring they are accessible to those who need them most – but we can’t do it without your help! Check out our Platinum-rated GuideStar profile to learn more.

What’s the best way to make a donation?

We are grateful for donations of all sizes and types. One-time donations can be made online at cfctb.org/donate or made out to Champions for Children and mailed to the address below. Monthly donations of any size – even just $5 – and credit card “round-ups” are another powerful way to make a difference. When you set up one of these types of gifts, you will automatically become a member of our Champion Builders society and enjoy special “impact updates,” event invitations, and a free gift just for joining!
