Tax Checkoff

This tax season, do something special for the 9,000+ Special Olympics athletes in the state by selecting Special Olympics Wisconsin on your state tax return.

As a fan of Special Olympics, you have likely witnessed the power of the mission. Special Olympics is transformative – not just for individuals with intellectual disabilities (ID), but for everyone involved. For over 50 years, Special Olympics has been building a movement to break down barriers for individuals with ID through the power of sport. Yet the movement is so much more than sports. Together, we are creating an #InclusionRevolution based on acceptance and respect.
