Icing on the Cake

Special Olympics Louisiana young athletesGreat news! A generous donor has agreed to contribute $100 for each new monthly donation made in September, until we recruit 150 new Sustaining Partners. 

Please help us take advantage of this incredible opportunity by becoming a Sustaining Partner today


As a Sustaining Partner, your steady, ongoing monthly gifts will help ensure we’re always able to provide training and competition opportunities to our athletes in Louisiana – and around the world.  And there’s never been a better time to join. 


Your monthly gift of $10, $20, or any amount you choose, along with the $100 match, will make a tremendous difference immediately and all year-round.


Just think how much more we can do for the athletes!

Special Olympics Louisiana transforms lives of people with intellectual disabilities and their families.  Through the power of sport, athletes develop the perseverance, skills, and spirit to realize their dreams on and off the field.  


But for every athlete taking part in Special Olympics, there are 120,000 more people in Louisiana with intellectual disabilities we haven’t yet reached.  They are still waiting for their chance to train and compete, to belong and make friends, to gain confidence and make their families proud.

We can and must do more.

Your ongoing support will help us reach even more athletes, continue to offer high quality sports trainings and competitions year-round, train more volunteer coaches, provide transportation to events, and so much more. And thanks to the $100 match, your generosity will stretch even further.


So, please, make a monthly gift right away— we are counting on you.
