For the first time since 2016, Special Olympics was omitted from the CA State Budget, but it’s not too late to change that. Please sign your name to the petition requesting your elected officials include Special Olympics in the budget.
This vital State of California funding enables Special Olympics California to deliver essential inclusive health, education, fitness, and sports programs to over 64,000 Californians with intellectual disabilities throughout all 58 California counties.
Special Olympics California allocates 100 percent of funding received from the State of California to direct health, education, fitness, and sports program costs.
COVID-19 Health and Financial Crisis
All Special Olympics California fundraising events, endowment funding, corporate sponsorships, and individual contributions have been dramatically impacted by the current pandemic. As a direct result of the COVID-19 crisis and the economic downturn, Special Olympics California faces a multi-million revenue shortfall in 2020-2021.
