Be a Sponsor

Special Olympics Montana is one of the most recognized and respected charities in the state and Special Olympics is a trusted organization throughout the world, dedicated to empowering individuals with intellectual disabilities to become physically fit, productive and respected members of society through sports training and competitions.

In a world that all too often is indifferent to those with intellectual disabilities, sponsors make a world of difference. Your charitable support endorses the heart of the Special Olympics movement, which celebrates abilities over disabilities and advances the collective virtues of inclusion and respect. Through these values and the unity of sponsors, donors, volunteers, and the public-at-large, we hope to transform our communities into more welcoming and open places for Montanans with intellectual disabilities.

  • Expand your customer reach through our network of passionate and loyal volunteers, donors, athletes and their families
  • Brand you company as a strong corporate citizen across Montana. Special Olympics has tremendous brand recognition within the U.S. and is the world’s largest sports organization.
  • Special Olympics Montana transforms communities and brings people together through its programs and events held throughout the state
  • Connect with our passionate and loyal volunteers, donors, athletes and families
  • See your support make an immediate impact when you watch a Special Olympics Montana event
  • Volunteer opportunities foster team building and community support

Special Olympics Montana events are held in nearly every Montana community, in over 12 separate towns. As a result of this extensive footprint across the state, Mission Sponsors have the opportunity to promote their brand and/or service, to a tremendous number of Montanans while doing so within the warm light of charitable support to those with intellectual disabilities. The positive perception this will garner for a corporate or organizational brand carries a tremendous value. There is no greater cause marketing opportunity with a Montana charity!
