Planned Giving

Create your own legacy by making a planned gift to Special Olympics Massachusetts. Through planned giving, you can ensure that the life-changing mission of Special Olympics is carried on for years to come.

There are many ways that you can leave your legacy by making a planned gift, including:

  • Gifts by bequest – Charitable bequests are easy to make and offer tremendous flexibility. You continue to enjoy use of your assets during your lifetime and there is no immediate donation required.
  • Gift annuities – In return for your gift of cash or stock, Special Olympics will pay you a fixed amount for the rest of your life.
  • Retirement plans, life insurance, securities and real estate – Name Special Olympics as a non-binding beneficiary of any of these assets.

Make a planned gift of any type and join the Champion’s Society. In the Olympic tradition of excellence and grandeur, Champion’s Society members are the guardians who protect our athletes’ future. By providing for Special Olympics in their estate and financial plans today, members of the Champion’s Society guarantee the long-term success of Special Olympics and its athletes.

Like the athletes whom it benefits, the Champion’s Society transcends all boundaries and was created to pay tribute to the dedicated individuals who have included Special Olympics in their will or other estate and financial plans. All members are connected by a shared vision to help Special Olympics ensure a safe and quality athlete experience, grow in numbers and expand our reach.

There are no membership fees or minimum gift amounts to join the Champion’s Society. The size of your gift is entirely your choice and is kept confidential. If you have already included Special Olympics in a bequest or other planned gift, we hope you will let us know. Your willingness to be listed as a member of the Champion’s Society not only encourages others to follow your example, but inspires the family members, athletes and community at large and ensures that Special Olympics’ life-improving mission will continue for generations to come.
