In 2005, Chris and his family established the CP3 Foundation, a philanthropic partnership with The Winston-Salem Foundation in honor of his late grandfather. The CP3 Foundation was founded to highlight his dedication both to his grandfather’s spirit and to the Winston-Salem, NC community that nurtured him from his days as a stand-out high school student-athlete to a national star at Wake Forest University.
The foundation, which has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars over the last six years, focuses on enriching the communities it services through initiatives including the Nathaniel Jones Scholarship Fund, in memory of Chris’ grandfather. The scholarship enables a Forsyth County student to attend Wake Forest University.
Chris’ emphasis on community involvement has won the CP3 Foundation the NBA’s Community Assist Award twice. The award is given to an NBA player that consistently shows passion for philanthropy and community service. The CP3 Foundation generously supports the charitable platforms of other initiatives, including a donation to The Athletes Relief Fund For Haiti of $61,616 to help Project Medishare provide medical supplies to Haiti after the earthquake in 2010.
The foundation’s initiatives include partnerships with Feed The Children, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Boys & Girls Club and Habitat for Humanity. The foundation also sponsors and supports literacy initiatives, youth basketball clinics and court refurbishments, holiday giving and emergency preparedness initiatives.
