About the Susan Williams CHAMPS Grant Program

Susan Williams CHAMPS Grants support organizations that provide underserved youth with the opportunity to participate in sports and fitness activities and teach life skills. Since the inception of the CHAMPS (Champions in Life) Grant program in 1988, nearly $2.1 million have been allocated to 233 youth organizations to support their sports programming and initiatives.

The grants are funded by the net proceeds of the annual Youthlinks Indiana Charity Golf Tournament, as well as direct contributions from many generous organizations like the Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation, the Samerian Foundation, and United Water. Youthlinks Indiana Charity Golf Tournament has been presented annually since 1988 by Indiana Sports Corp.

In 2012, Indiana Sports Corp renamed its CHAMPS Grant Program to the Susan Williams CHAMPS Grant Program. The renaming recognized the significant contributions of Williams, who retired as the president of Indiana Sports Corp after more than seven years in the position.
