How is Special Olympics Funded?

Special Olympics of Greater Knoxville serves over 1500 athletes, providing them with year-round training and competition in 18 different sports. Opportunity for athletes' growth is evident in so many areas: Physical, emotional, social, just to name a few.

WE REALLY NEED YOUR HELP ! !

As you may or may not know, Special Olympics is funded solely by donations and contributions from community organizations, businesses and individuals.

Special Olympics by-laws prohibit charging athletes for any portions of their Special Olympics experience: Uniforms, housing, meals, ribbons, medals, equipment, etc, Special Olympic by-laws also prohibit charging any admission cost for any competition. You can see that Special Olympics does not generate any revenue from athlete participation. This is to ensure that no athlete is left out of training or competition due to their socio-economic standing.

Won't you please consider making an impact on the lives of the Special Olympic athletes in your community? Below are some funding needs. If there is any way you can help, please print a contribution form (listed on the right side of this page) and mail it to the address on the form. Any help is appreciated.
