For almost two decades, the Spanos family and the Chargers Community Foundation have been providing funds to educational institutions throughout San Diego County. This passion for our county’s schools led to the creation of the Chargers Champions program in February of 2000.
Since that time, Chargers Champions has provided more than $4 million to assist schools, teachers and students. Each year the Chargers Champions School Grant Program allows public and private schools within San Diego County to apply for badly-needed funding for physical fitness, nutrition or athletic programs on their campuses.
Since the beginning of the School Grant Program, 95 schools have received funding for projects as various as outdoor fitness trails, weight rooms, running tracks or even Sparks equipment.
Through the Chargers Champions School Grant Program, the Spanos family and the San Diego Chargers are committed to improving the health and well-being of our children, regardless of where they reside.
