Donate to CHAMP

CHAMP needs your support to continue providing the program to students for free. Money donated for CHAMP is used to purchase food and T-shirts for participants, to support travel and parking when the high school students come to the UH campus, and support small administrative costs.

A bulk of the money raised for CHAMP comes from individual donations of $20 to $50. Although these amounts are small individually, with enough people donating regularly they provide sufficient support to run the program each year. The more support we have, the more students we can reach.

Since the University of Houston is a public educational institution, all donations to CHAMP are considered charitable contributions by the IRS and are therefore tax deductible. To make a donation, simply follow the steps below.

There are two options for making a monetary donation to CHAMP:
  1. Online Donation Using Credit Card or Bank Account

      Step 1: Go to the Giving Page for the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics at the University of Houston.

      Step 2: Leave the "John L. Bear Presidential Endowed Fellowship" and "teachHouston" lines blank. Under "Other NSM Giving Opportunities" go to the drop down menu below the words "I would like to make a gift to benefit the following:", select the "CHAMP - Cougars and Houston Area Math Program" option, and enter your dollar amount.

      Step 3: Fill out the rest of the form with your information and submit.

    All information on this site is transmitted securely. Donations are tax deductible, and if you use this method, the University of Houston will send you a tax receipt within two weeks.

  2. Write a Check

    Write a check for any amount, made payable to "University of Houston" with "CHAMP" in the subject line, and mail it to the following address:
    Dr. Mark Tomforde
    Department of Mathematics, 651 PGH
    University of Houston
    Houston, TX 77204-3008

    Donations are tax deductible, and if you donate by check the University of Houston will send you a tax receipt.

All money donated by either option goes directly to CHAMP, and there are no fees, indirect costs, overhead, etc. taken by the University of Houston.

Besides a monetary donation, if you are interested in volunteering for CHAMP, or would like to discuss any other ways in which you can contribute to CHAMP, please visit our Volunteer Page or contact Dr. Mark Tomforde.
