Start-Up Funds For Unified Champion Schools

Launch inclusive activities at your school for free!
Athlete and Teacher connecting with each other

Thanks to a generous grant from the U.S. Office of Special Education Programs at the U.S. Department of Education, Special Olympics Virginia provides start-up funds for new Unified Champion Schools. Schools are reimbursed up to $1,500 to launch their first Unified Sport and up to $1,000 when starting a second sport.

Questions? Contact Val Reinford for more information.

In addition to start-up funds, we have fun and flexible collaborative fundraising opportunities where you can raise additional money for your school and Special Olympics Virginia. From Polar Plunges to Feet Meets, we're ready to help!
