Ways to Give

You're Making a Difference

Because of generous contributions like yours, Special Olympics Michigan is able to serve over 22,000 participants by offering 24 sports and facilitating over 700 local, regional, and statewide competitions every year. But Special Olympics Michigan is so much more than a sports program -- your donation helps provide seven Health and Wellness programs, Young Athletes programs, and Unified school and sports programs throughout the state of Michigan.

Gifts can be given to Special Olympics Michigan in a variety of ways. Take a look at the options below, and contact us to discuss the best giving options for you. Together we can ensure the athletes of Special Olympics Michigan continue to grow in confidence and joy.

Did you know that charitable giving in 2020 has more value for donors than before? New legislation, under the CARES Act, allows taxpayers who take the standard deduction the opportunity to claim a new deduction of $300, each, in annual charitable contributions. That means your giving will not only continue to greatly support Special Olympics Michigan, but donors will receive a tax benefit not available before.
