A cause I care about needs help

Dear Community Members:

We are Champion Youth Outreach 2000 and we need your support.  We are currently a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization located in several communities throughout the Chicagoland suburban area. We offer affordable classes in self-defense/safety awareness, poms & dance to children ages 5 on up to adult. “That’s right, you can take a class as a family."

Welcome to our story, we were established in 1999 as a non-profit youth organization serving many communities throughout Illinois.  Our programs in self-defense/safety awareness, poms & dance are always affordable, flexible & age appropriate. Classes are taught by top quality, caring and knowledgeable instructors. Our organization has always prided ourselves in offering affordable class fees to our communities, and have hosted several fundraisers throughout the years to make that happen.  Unfortunately, due to the rising costs of general operating expenses, insurance, facility rentals and advertising we have found that we no longer can do that without your support.

To help us with the costs we have created a GoFundMe page, If you could support our GoFundMe page by making a donation and then sharing it with everyone in your network, we would greatly appreciate it. We know money can be tight, so please know that even $5 helps us get closer to our goal! Let us know if you have any questions and we will be happy to answer them. 

With your support we can continue to keep our doors open to serve future generations!
