CFG Charities was formed to provide a professional conduit for successful business and sports leaders to give back to their community through charitable activities. Originally formed in Ohio, as an effort to assist Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis promote his own foundation, and after continued involvement with Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari, it was clear that the ability of multiple celebrities, representing multiple fields, could coordinate their individual networks into an effort that wildly exceeded the ability of any of the individuals by themselves. With this goal in mind, Celebrity Foundation Group Charities (CFG Charities, Inc.) was born.
To leverage these opportunities, senior CBS Sports legend and multiple Emmy winning NFL Network producer BobGoodrich; five time US International Cheerleading Team gold medalist and team captain Amanda Scripture Robertson;nationally recognized financial architect and business celebrity John Konop engaged the services of Oriana IT Solutions (an Azure Microsoft Partner) and Charles Robertson,retired former judge and nationally recognized author in business law to put together a framework through which hundreds of athletes, coaches, sports representatives and business moguls could contribute their personal networks toward giving back to the dozens of charities with which they have some association. This network of individuals was able to collaboratively engage national media networks and sports agencies with opportunities to further the mission of their individual associations and multiply the opportunities presented to any one individual.
Through CFG Charities, it is our goal that hundreds of thousands of dollars can be directly raised to assist the worthy goals of charities across the country, and in the process, any additional funds raised are specifically earmarked for local nondiscriminatory charities, such as Never Alone Ministries.
John Konop is the nationally recognized payment architect behind payment systems implemented by Chase Bank, Greystone Business Resources, and dozens of online and payment gateways.

John will be responsible, as Chair, for the management and direction of the enterprise.
