The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. We give them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and share personal skills, gifts of spirit, and friendship with their families, their fellow Special Olympics athletes, and the world.
Through the power of sports, Special Olympics helps people with intellectual disabilities feel welcome in their communities and develop a profound belief in themselves. One of the best ways to explain how we help our athletes is to share this story with you.
Special Olympics is a 4-star-rated, world-renowned charity targeting the nearly 200 million adults and children who have intellectual disabilities, in nearly 170 countries, through sports, education, and health programs. We are designated tax-exempt under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
