Creative Ways to Give

Endowments

Did you know? Making a donation through a planned gift is a great way to create a legacy of support for Special Olympics Louisiana, while providing for your own future. Through an Endowment donation, you can make a thoughtfully planned gift that benefits athletes today and well into the future.

Your gift will also go a long way toward changing views about people with intellectual disabilities. With the help of your Endowment donation, Special Olympics Louisiana can touch thousands more across the state of Louisiana. Hundreds of thousands of potential athletes could be reached by Special Olympics Louisiana if additional resources were available.

By making an Endowment donation, our supporters have an opportunity to make planned and major gifts, as well as contributions. Stock, real estate, and life insurance policies are popular ways to consider contributing to Special Olympics Louisiana. Individuals of all financial circumstances can participate in and benefit from an Endowment donation.

Be a part of GivingTuesday!!

Today, hundreds of organizations across the United States will come together for a national giving day to celebrate charitable organizations and our causes. Special Olympics Louisiana is one of them.

Today and every day, we empower our athletes to exceed their personal bests on the playing field and in life. But for every Special Olympics champion, there is another who is waiting for the chance to win. Help us get one more athlete onto the playing field for a season – donate and have your gift matched! Every dollar you give will be doubled! Through December 31, 2014, Finish Line will match your tax-deductible donation, dollar for dollar, up to a campaign total of $200,000.

 This match will double the impact of every dollar you give. That means Special Olympics will be able to do more for our athletes, reach farther to engage new athletes, and show the world more than ever what people with intellectual disabilities can accomplish.
