"What Special Olympics does for us is gives us self-esteem. It taught me about myself and how I can accomplish my dreams. People say I can't do certain things because I have an intellectual disability but that’s not true."

~Michelle Core,
Special Olympics Athlete

Foundation Fundraising

Whether a family, corporation, or community foundation, we rely on these special relationships throughout the year to help launch and sustain new programs. Foundation funding has seeded programs like our School Partnership Program, Project UNIFY, Young Athlete Program, and Healthy Athletes. They have helped strengthen our infrastructure and invested in technology, staffing, and resources to help us reach and serve more families.

We are always looking for new partnerships and are extremely grateful to have enjoyed some extraordinary relationships with foundations that have lasted for many years. For more information, please contact Violette Prentice at 562.502.1143 or
