Special Olympics Southern California (SOSC)

Special Olympics Southern California


We recognize that we need to invest in cultivation steps with prospective donors.

We also recognize that our typical cultivation efforts (i.e. invitation to join us at a competition) are restricted due to the pandemic, so we have identified ways volunteer leaders and Development Team members can work together to engage donors and prospective supporters.
