Ways to Give


Our mission is to foster inclusion, acceptance, health, education, and unity among individuals with and without disabilities, both on and off the playing field. Your donations enable us to offer vital programs and events so that athletes of all ages and abilities can pursue their passion for sports and continue participating for as long as they desire. Together, we ensure that no one is left on the sidelines.


Invest in the Idea that Everyone Belongs

Donors play a critical role in delivering a more inclusive community through Special Olympics programs. No athlete, Unified partner, or their family is ever charged to participate on teams or individually in sports tournaments, leagues, recreational opportunities, or leadership training. Whether through direct gifts, peer to peer fundraisers, estate planning, bequests, or donor advised funds, Special Olympics Massachusetts is here to help you connect and invest in the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities.

Donors like you are largest source of funding for Special Olympics Massachusetts. Your donation will go directly towards athlete uniforms, basketballs, medals, and other items that make participation in Special Olympics a reality. Beyond supporting the costs of competition for our athletes, your donation furthers a movement that is breaking down barriers and stereotypes; all while creating fuller, richer, healthier lives for people with intellectual disabilities. Thank you!
