Special Olympics Louisiana provides sports training and competition opportunities to thousands of athletes with intellectual disabilities. We are constantly striving to grow and expand our program. To insure we will be here in the future to meet the needs of our athletes, we must continue to find private funding. Your current donations are important, but Gifts of Planned Giving will make a difference for the future. They will help insure that Special Olympics Louisiana continues its mission well into the next century. The most common way to make a Gift of Planned Giving is by a bequest or legacy gift. A bequest in your will lets you pass any amount you wish to us free of estate tax in the United States. You may give a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate. We encourage you to consult an attorney who specializes in estate planning to ensure your will best suits your needs and desires.
