Third-Party Fundraisers

Is Special Olympics Colorado your charity of choice? Now your community or company can support our athletes through your own Third-Party Event. SOCO defines a “Third-Party Event” as any fundraising activity by a non-affiliated group or individual, where SOCO has no fiduciary responsibilities and little or no staff involvement.

For more information about how you or your company can be involved, contact: Victoria Paterson-Maiman at 720.359.3108.
