As the name implies, Charity Champions are nonprofit organizations working to make a positive impact in our community. Each fall, our employees chose six nonprofits from nominations that are made here on our website. Anyone can submit a nomination, and the nominations are carried forward each year. The benefits of being selected a Charity Champions are leadership development and increased awareness, both of which are usually cost-prohibitive for these organizations. It’s our way of giving back to the community that has treated us so well for more than 125 years.
Do You Know a Nonprofit that Could Benefit From
- Maximum marketing exposure including TFNB digital marketing, radio, and print advertising, and Baylor Athletics’ social media

- A video presentation about the nonprofit played on McLane Stadium’s huge video board during the game.
- Radio interview with John Morris during pre-game show at Touchdown Alley.
- A series of half-day training sessions for your executive director, board members and staff that will help an organization meet its goals.
If the answer is yes, then nominate a nonprofit. It takes five minutes to fill out the online form.
When asked about the presentation on the field during the September 15, 2015 Lamar University vs. Baylor football game, Tim Brown of Methodist Children’s Home said:
“Our video was played on the big screen at McLane Stadium, and the crowd was cheering. The number of eyes and the number of people watching that video was unbelievable. It gave us more coverage in a small amount of time than we could ever hope for.” — Tim Brown, president and CEO.
Care Net Pregnancy Center of Central Texas now has 15 MacBooks laptops and seven iMac computers as a result of the Charity Champions radio interview with John Morris before the rainy Iowa State vs. Baylor football game on Saturday, October 24, 2015.
“A young man came into our office, and he told me, ‘I’m proud of ya’ll,” and he wrote a check for $25,000, which was fabulous.”— Deborah McGregor, CEO.
Kathy Reid, Family Abuse Center, says the benefits of being a Charity Champion are immeasurable:
I feel certain that the publicity around Charity Champions has literally saved lives in Waco. — Kathy Reid, executive director.
Recipients are chosen at the sole discretion of TFNB. Selected organizations are required to designate a representative to participate in marketing initiatives, attend and participate in the live presentation at a Baylor home game.
