FUNDRAISING EVENTS AND RESOURCES
Any money raised by your agency will be credited to your agency’s LETR fundraising efforts. We recognize all agencies that raise $1500 or more on “Honor Roll.”
Your agency can raise money either by sitting on a Polar Plunge committee if there is one in your area, or by simply putting together a team. This is a fun, easy way to raise money!! For more information, visit www.PlungeOregon.com
Any agency in any community can put on a Tip-A-Cop. Our goal here is to have at least one Tip-A-Cop in each Oregon county. Special Olympics Oregon has partnerships with Red Robin, Claim Jumper and Applebee’s and state-wide Tip-A-Cops happen in these restaurants. Don’t have one of these restaurants in your community? No problem! Local restaurants are perfect partners for this event. Click here for Event Guidelines.

“I promise to give of the time in my life so that Special Olympics athletes can have the time of their lives. I promise to support Special Olympics not just as an expression of charity, but as a form of respect for my fellow human beings. I promise to spread the word of volunteerism because, in giving, I receive so much more in return.”
