Corporate partnerships and foundation grants allow Special Olympics New Jersey to continue to conduct and expand program opportunities for our athletes. We build strong relationships and provide value back to the corporation or foundation. We have learned over the years that this is vital to establishing long-term partnerships.

Special Olympics New Jersey works with each corporation and foundation to create customized partnerships that may include marketing opportunities, employee engagement and recognition at special events and sports competition. Recognition of all contributions and marketing dollars is inline with the level of support and tailored to that corporation or foundation.

As a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization, we operate on an annual budget that is funded through individual, corporate, civic and foundation dollars that make up more than 98% of the annual operating budget.

All programs are free to all registered athletes and covers insurance, facilities, equipment, uniforms, housing and meals at events, awards, sports and education, and more!

  • Print and electronic acknowledgement of sponsorship (dependent on level of partnership) in specified publications.
