In addition to being a massive conduit of information and interaction, the Internet opens up a vast array of on-line fundraising opportunities. Special Olympics Kentucky regularly harnesses the power of the Internet with our fundraising sites for Polar Plunges and Plane and Truck Pulls, but you don’t have to wait for a special event to find a way to support SOKY on-line. E-commerce sites provide a long lasting, easy way for you to support Special Olympics athletes every time you shop.

EBay Giving Works: If you or somebody you know sells merchandise on EBay, please consider giving a percentage of your sales to Special Olympics Kentucky. You can choose to donate anywhere from 10-100% of the final sale price of your item through EBay Giving Works. EBay Giving Works is a program that enables members of the EBay community to donate to their favorite cause. Sellers can give a portion of the proceeds from their sales and buyers can add a donation to their purchases during checkout. Sellers can visit the EBay Giving Works Sellers Page, search for Special Olympics Kentucky and choose their percentage and a portion of their sales price will automatically be deducted and forwarded to SOKY.
