Planned Giving

Create your legacy by planning for the future...

Year after year, our mission depends on caring friends like you to help us reach more people with intellectual disabilities and deliver life–changing sports training and competitions. There's another way you can help our deserving athletes and considering a bequest to Special Olympics through your will.

Our athletes and families often tell us they don't know what they would do without Special Olympics. So we plan for the future. We consider how many contributions we will receive each year, and we use those gifts carefully to fulfill our promise to our athletes.

But we can really look into the future when we know that caring friends have set aside an estate gift to Special Olympics in their will. Once your wishes are known, there are other advantages, too. You continue to hold onto your assets for your lifetime and can change your will at any time should circumstances change. And from a tax perspective, your estate may be entitled to an unlimited estate tax charitable deduction for bequests to qualified organizations such as Special Olympics.

We're here to help you in any way. Call us at 503-248-0600  or e-mail at Thank you so very much for making the dreams of our athletes and their families come true.

"Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt."
