Description

Special Olympics New York is a privately funded not-for-profit 501(c)3 agency that raises its operating budget mainly through the support and generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations. Special Olympics New York does not charge its athletes or their families to participate. Consequently, all moneys spent for athletes, coaches, competitions and volunteers must be raised through fund-raising activities.
