Support Special Olympics Vermont

Make an online donation

Make a gift, change a life! Special Olympics Vermont relies on the generosity of our community to provide high quality sports training and competition events to athletes with intellectual disabilities throughout the year. Your contribution will directly impact an athlete, and help us build inclusive communities.

Make a Gift to Lisa's Legacy Fund

After nearly seven years of leading the organization, Lisa DeNatale is retiring from her post as President and CEO.
