Why Make a Planned Gift?
Make A Difference for Special Olympics Athletes and Yourself – Consider an Estate of Legacy Gift
A thoughtfully planned estate gift can help us reach those who haven't had the opportunity to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage and experience joy through participation in our program. The effect of your gift will go well beyond the athletic fields and playing courts, however. Your influence will extend into classrooms, family rooms and work environments, where our athletes -- because of their participation in Special Olympics -- have become more effective and productive family members, employees and students. Your contribution can significantly advance our mission around the globe.
Making charitable contributions is an art -- a creative process that adapts to the changing needs and wishes of the donor. Planned or legacy giving is an increasingly popular way for individuals of all financial circumstances to make charitable gifts, enabling a donor to arrange charitable contributions in ways that maximize his or her personal objectives. Indeed, there are a variety of plans designed to ensure a gift will be put to the best possible use and fit the donor's financial needs and objectives. We are pleased to outline several opportunities you may wish to consider as you plan your own charitable gifts.
