For more than 45 years, Special Olympics New York has been committed to transforming and empowering the lives of children and adults with intellectual disabilities. It is the largest program in North America with 68,547 athletes, offering 22 sports and 5,478 competitive experiences. Our work is never finished as there is always more to offer our countless athletes, families and their communities.

Over the past few years, it became evident that there was a crucial need for new funding sources and in response, Special Olympics New York started to build an individual donor development program. In 2016, the Champions for Champions Giving Society was founded. The loyal and generous donors who choose to join the Champions for Champions Giving Society in 2016 and 2017 will be considered Founding Members.

It is with much appreciation that we introduce the prestigious
