How to Donate Directly to Broward County

Our program is made possible through the generosity of individuals, civic clubs, businesses and corporations both local and across the nation. Our athletes participate in our program at no cost; therefore, without volunteers and donations, the program would not exist.

We accept donations in the form of cash or checks; or items such as water, food, transportation, office supplies, and equipment or shoes for our athletes.

If you would like to make a donation, please contact us or send to:

Special Olympics Florida – Broward County

Your generous donations are tax deductible. Thank you for your continued support.
