Checkers Charitable Foundation
The Checkers Charitable Foundation is a 501C3 that exists to assist in the funding of non-profits 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 four times in our first eight seasons in the league with a total of $5.7 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.
