GIFTS IN KIND

Gifts in Kind provide us with invaluable office and sports equipment, technology and day to day goods that are essential to run our programs and services in communities across the province. Some companies also offer their services free of charge: for instance, by printing an event program or providing professional advice. All of this reduces our overhead costs and allow us to spend more resources on our greatest priority: enriching the lives of individuals with an intellectual disability through sport.

In donating a Gift in Kind to Special Olympics Nova Scotia  we can publicize to our athletes, families and our online community, the generosity of your gift and your commitment to helping our athletes, of all ages and a wide range of abilities, to participate in programs and to experience the transformative power and joy of sport.

Special Olympics Nova Scotia does not sell, trade or otherwise share our mailing list.
