What We Do
The Checkers Charitable Foundation helps fund nonprofits in the Carolinas that focus on promoting the health, character, education and success of children and adolescents.
As the winner of the American Hockey League’s Award of Excellence for Community Service three out of the last six seasons and with a total of $4 million donated since 2006, the community is at the center of everything we do.
Fundraising initiatives include Checkers theme nights, special events such as the Checkers Annual Charity Golf Tournament, community outreach programs and live jersey auctions. Proceeds from fundraising are then distributed to numerous charities in the Carolinas. With your support, the Checkers Charitable Foundation is able to provide funding to deserving local non-profits to support their missions and impact the community.
Organizations use the Checkers as a platform to not only raise money, but to spread awareness of their cause to thousands of fans every game. We hosted the first ever Domestic Violence Prevention Night benefiting the Jamie Kimble Foundation for Courage as well as the first ever Ovarian Cancer Awareness Day benefiting Teal Diva among a myriad of other fundraisers and community initiatives.
