Civic Champs was founded as a Benefit Corporation in early 2019. As a Benefit Corporation, we are driven by our desire to ensure the growth of the company is coupled with an increase in social impact and benefit to our communities.

In 2022, Civic Champs was formally certified as a Benefit Corporation by BLab and launched several new initiatives. We held our first fundraiser for nonprofits, supported the war effort in Ukraine, and were honored by BLab as a top 5% Benefit Corporation for Governance.
