Memorials

Memorial donations can be made in any of the above three methods. Quite often, we will receive donations in memory of a loved one. We are thankful and appreciative of the thought towards Special Olympics during this difficult time. We would like you to know that we strive to accept your donations and be respectful of your decision. Therefore, our policy when collecting memorial donations is to issue a tax receipt to the donor for the amount donated, then after one month of the memorial, we issue a letter to the family acknowledging the donations from family and friends. We are more then happy to accommodate any requests outside of our policy. To discuss this directly with our office, please call the number listed above.
