Jacob Moore was about to run a race he had dreamed about all year long. He crossed the finish line thrilled at his victory and self-accomplishment. Jacob, along with the other competitors, are all gold medalists. They are all Olympians. Indeed, they are Special Olympians.

This year the Special Olympics must raise five million dollars to support the games and keep athletes such as Jacob anticipating their next Olympic race. The Charitable Giving Committee’s contribution of $2,000 to the Special Olympics will bring a special victory to many special athletes.

The Special Olympics Charity was just selected as a Top Nonprofit by Philanthropedia. Also, Charity Navigator awarded Special Olympics its prestigious four star rating. Charity Navigator, the largest and most influential charity rater in the U.S., aims to help people give to charity with confidence by evaluating organizations financial health and their commitment to accountability and transparency. Only a quarter of the approximately 5,500 charities that are evaluated have received the highest rating, indicating that Special Olympics is a top performer in the non-profit sector. This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Special Olympics from other charities, and really demonstrates why you should consider adding the Special Olympics to the Charitable Giving Committee’s donation list.
