DONATE/CONTRIBUTE

Not everyone is interested or available to coach or volunteer with Special Olympics Kentucky.  But you can still make a difference in the life of an athlete and the Special Olympics movement by providing your support through individual or corporate financial support or in-kind donations.  Your generosity enables people with intellectual disabilities to experience the power of sports every day.  In doing so, you are helping change society’s perceptions and treatment of people with intellectual disabilities – and creating a better world for all of us!
