Something HUGE is underway in Austin right now. It's called Amplify Austin, and we are excited to be one of the charities participating in this 24-hour, online giving event. If you've already donated to the cause, thank you! If not, you only have a few hours left to contribute.

Donations will be accepted through their secure website, AmplifyATX.org, and through authorized secure AmplifyATX giving forms located on participating nonprofit websites.

Special Olympics Texas' goal is to raise $5,000 by 7:00 p.m., which will help us to enhance the lives of more than 4,500 athletes in the Central Texas Area. We’re still quite a ways from our goal, but you can help us meet, or beat, our target.

Help support our super Special Olympics Texas athletes:

  • For $25, one athlete can compete at an area sports competition such as basketball, athletics, bocce ball and softball
  • For $35, one athlete can participate at Winter Games
  • For $55, one athlete can participate at Fall Classic
  • For $75, one athlete can compete at Summer Games
  • For $100, one athlete or family member can attend Families Camp
  • For $500, 20 Special Olympics Texas athletes can receive scholarships to participate in competitions at the state level

DONATE NOW!

Thank you for your continued support of Special Olympics Texas!
