Special Olympics Southern California provides free year-round sports and programs to athletes. Programs are free to the athletes and to their families, so donations are critical to our program. Examples of program expenses include equipment, uniforms, transportation, facility fees, background screening costs, official's fees and more. In order to support our athletes, we raise funds in a variety of ways - from individual donations, special events, Law Enforcement Torch Run, grants, and more. Our Development team throughout the chapter helps to secure donations with the support of interns and volunteers. If you are looking for ways to gain experience in nonprofit development and management, grant writing, events planning, researching donor prospects, solicitation strategizing, in addition to gaining valuable office experience working in one of the nation's leading sports organizations, look no further!
