As Special Olympics Indiana approaches its 50th anniversary, our success is based on always operating with the utmost trust and integrity in everything we do. It has earned us an impeccable reputation. As someone who cares about Special Olympics, you are already familiar with our work and the lives being changed as a result.

Planned giving is the thoughtful process of integrating a charitable gift into a donor’s overall financial and estate plans. Through this process, a donor is able to make an ultimate gift that perpetuates his or her legacy of support for Special Olympics. There are many options for planned giving, including bequests, outright gifts of stock, retirement plans, and life insurance.

Why Special Olympics Indiana?

Planned gifts enable Special Olympics Indiana to expand its reach and influence into the future. When you make a legacy gift to us, we make these commitments in return:

We will continue to be good stewards of the funds you have entrusted to us—you deserve nothing less.

We will honor your wishes. If you wish to remain anonymous or if you wish to designate your donation to a particular initiative that is dear to your heart, your goals and objectives will always be paramount.

We will be forever grateful for your support and the commitment you have shown to change the lives of people with intellectual disabilities through the power of sport.

The size of your gift is entirely your choice and is kept confidential. If you have already included Special Olympics Indiana in a bequest or other planned gift, we hope you will let us know. Your willingness to be listed as a member of the Carl and Betty Erskine Society not only encourages others to follow your example, but inspires confidence in the family members, athletes, and community at large that Special Olympics’ life-improving mission will continue for generations to come.
