Who We Are

Their Opportunity is a grassroots charity in Durham that exists to provide low-income families (total household income of $45,000 or less) with the means to enroll their children in organized sports and recreation programs. Additionally, within 3 months of receiving funding, each child is mandated to “pay-it-forward” through our Giveback ProgramOur program inspires hope while teaching essential life skills of teamwork and compassion; proving that only one change in a child’s life can create an opportunity for inspiration and change, while further impacting our community.

What Makes Us Unique

 

Wherever our funding is raised is where it stays in order to be distributed to the children of that community.  As well, all personal donations are handled in a way that 90% of the money goes toward programming.

Their Opportunity is a registered charity that is “reaching kids before they need to be rescued”.  Our goal is to engage 5500 children by October 2018 creating community ambassadors for hope, generosity, and change.
