Your Impact

“It’s a gift that will bring such joy and accomplishment to so many people’s lives in the future. What better gift can you give?”

– Gene Presson, member of The Champion’s Society® and parent of two Special Olympics athletes, when asked what he would say to someone who was considering including a gift for Special Olympics in their own plans

Usher in Real Change

Special Olympics has been building a movement to break down barriers – both on and off the field in health and education – all through the power of sport. Your support inspires action to ultimately end discrimination for people with intellectual disabilities. 

Thanks to committed supporters like you, together we can:

Provide year-round sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

Inspire communities to open their hearts to a wider world of human talents and potential.

Create opportunities for families, community members, local leaders, businesses, law enforcement, celebrities, and dignitaries to band together to change attitudes and support athletes.

Foster an environment of inclusion and acceptance that stops bullying and brings people together.

Shift the focus to what our athletes CAN do, not what they can’t. 

Create Your Legacy of Acceptance, Inclusion and Tolerance

When you include a gift in your will to Special Olympics, you create an enduring legacy that will help generations of athletes find success through the power of sports. Learn more about gifts in a will and other opportunities to make an impact.
