Schools are considered the foundation of any community. CharacterPlus supports the work of our schools but is only as strong as the community that supports it. We are grateful for the financial support of our community partners.

Their support helps us create positive and healthy school environments that will inspire the next generation of compassionate people of integrity.

Thank you to Cardinals Care for sponsoring Champions for Character. Every year, this program honors three schools in the St. Louis metro area that have a school-wide ethos of service-learning.


Congratulations to the 2019 winners!

  • High Mount School | High Mount School District #116 | Swansea, Illinois

  • Claude Brown Elementary | Lincoln R-3 School District |Troy, Missouri

  • Mrs. Sausele’s Class | Maplewood-Richmond Heights Early Childhood | St. Louis, Missouri

We are grateful for the continued support of Friends of CharacterPlus; a volunteer-run membership organization established in 2005. Friends of CharacterPlus’ mission is to increase support and public awareness of the CharacterPlus processes and the impact on educators, parents and the community.
