Fundraisers

In order for us to put on hundreds of trainings and competitions every year, we need to generate more than $4 million in revenue each year. Most of that funding comes directly from individuals like you! It's through events such as the Drive it Home Raffle or the Polar Plunge that allow us to reach thousands of athletes year in and year out.

See below for a comprehensive list of fundraisers of which you can be a part.

At the bottom of the page, you will find a separate list of events that you can take part in to support Special Olympics Missouri.

If you want to host a fundraiser of your own, we call those third-party events and we'd love to have you do exactly that!
