What is the Chins Up Foundation?

Chins Up, is an IT For Cause Organization, with a mission to inspire and empower children by teaching them effective communication skills through exchanging letters with collegiate student-athletes via our Chins Up Exchange software. The Chins Up Exchange software allows Mentees and Mentors to have their own profiles, and each are matched in a one-on-one capacity. Chins Up was founded under the belief that collegiate student-athletes can have a tremendously positive effect on elementary aged children. What better way to have children learn than while allowing them to share letters with a collegiate student-athlete? Chins Up has developed an efficient, effective, and safe way to make learning fun for children while giving collegiate student-athletes the ability to make in impact in their community from their computers, laptops, or smart phones.

What does my donation support?

With your help, our software will be brought to a mobile phone application platform, making it easier for student-athletes to download and participate. We are bringing the idea of the pen pal program and mentoring to smart phones!

In the fall of 2014 Chins Up received one of the largest in-kind donations in the history of Wisconsin to develop software to facilitate the pen pal program. By the spring of 2015, the Chins Up Exchange was born and Chins Up became an IT For Cause Organization. Mentors and Mentees have individual profiles that they log into in order to share their letters. We are an educational tool, working directly with the elementary schools and closely with the teachers. Each letter is intercepted by Chins Up for review before it is forwarded on to the recipient. Student-athletes are provided with a curriculum to follow that will help guide them as they mentor the children.
