There are many ways to help Special Olympics and Area 26...

Besides donating your time, our programs exist only because kind individuals and organizations donate funds for equipment, venues, and training.

In addition, donors get the satisfaction of knowing they are making the world better by fostering inclusion. 

Fundraising and Donations

Special Olympics Area 26 is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of persons with intellectual disabilities through sport. We rely on our local community for financial support as well as volunteer assistance. It is the generosity of a few businesses in Northern Virginia, organizations, and individuals that contribute and support our athletes in Northern Virginia. When over 13,000 athletes with an intellectual disability swing a bat, kick a ball or race down the slopes, they’re not just training for the game – they’re training for life.
A 1995 Yale University study proved it: our athletes consistently do better at school, at work and at home than their peers not involved in our year-round sports program. Your monetary gift will help our athletes succeed – in competition and in life.
