Ways to Get Involved

A corporate sponsorship offers a variety of ways for companies to get involved:

  1. Sponsor an area, state competition or special event in your community. We transfer goodwill to our corporate sponsors by connecting them in the hearts and minds of our audience, with the cause they hold dear.
  2. Bring your employees out to be day-of-event volunteers with one of our Corporate Volunteerism opportunities. Sponsors and donors receive priority placement and selection for volunteer opportunities.
  3. Make an In-Kind Donation of a product or service that will be a budget-relieving contribution to our program.
  4. Have an Employee Giving Program or Volunteer Match Incentive?  Encourage your employees to support the cause by donating to the Special Olympics Utah through their workplace donations, payroll deduction or volunteer hours.
  5. Sponsor a workplace fundraising activity or fund drive to raise funds for Special Olympics Utah athletes and our programs.
