Set The Expectation Champions is a global network of current and former athletes dedicated to using the power of their platforms to champion community agencies and groups who serve families and survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence.
To date, our Champions have helped raise $117,000 for programs and served over 2,200 children. $80,000 was given directly to local Washington DC survivor support and advocacy programs for their most needed projects. $37,000 went directly to buying items to support local DC drives and events.
Acting as ambassadors of the Set The Expectation (STE) nonprofit, Champions must have a track record of behavior that reflects kindness, compassion, dignity and respect for others. They must be willing to learn and unlearn, hold themselves accountable and act as leaders and agents for change both on and off the field and court.
To the best of their ability and as work schedules permit, STE Champions will partner with community agencies and groups serving families and survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. Champions will lend their platforms to these agencies and groups with the intent to:
• Raise awareness about the work and programs of their community partners.
• Highlight the needs of their community partners and how to connect with and support them.
• As appropriate, engage in events, fundraisers, and campaigns sponsored by their community partners.
