How do I donate to the CHAMPSS program?

CHAMPSS relies on grants and donations to administer the program. CHAMPSS has a suggested donation of $5.00 per meal; however, no one is denied a meal due to the inability to pay. The full cost of the meal is $7.00.

There are many ways to make donations to CHAMPSS:

  1. Submit a payment with a check by mail: 11811 S Sunset Dr., Suite 1300, Olathe, KS 66061

Donation reminders including the CHAMPSS participant's meal usage are mailed monthly in a marked CHAMPSS envelope. Enclosed with the donation reminder is a return envelope for mail in donations if participants prefer to donate by check.

How do I order more meals?

Each month CHAMPSS will load one meal a day for every day of the month onto the meal card. CHAMPSS participants will not have to reorder meals at any time. There is no pressure to use all of the meals each month. Unused meals will be removed at the end of each month. The following month, CHAMPSS participants will receive a donation reminder with their meal usage.
