About Campaign

Special Olympics is a global sports & social movement that changes the lives of people with intellectual disabilities through the transformative power of sports. It is founded on the belief that people with intellectual disabilities can, with proper instruction and encouragement, learn, enjoy and benefit from participation in individual and team sports.

Special Olympics Singapore is a registered non-profit voluntary organisation affiliated to the National Council of Social Services, Singapore National Olympic Council and Sports Singapore. We have Institute of Public Character (IPC) status and donors will be able to enjoy tax-deductible claim at 250% of the donated amount for personal or corporate income tax.

Special Olympics Singapore requires at least $400,000 per year to support its training programs, competitions and activities that are provided free-of-charge to persons with intellectual disabilities. For this Flag Day, we need to raise at least S$50,000 to remain eligible for future Flag Day allocation by the National Council of Social Services.

Your support is greatly appreciated.

About the Charity

Special Olympics (SO) Singapore was set up in April 1983 as an adjunct committee of the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS) and the Association for Educationally Sub-Normal Children now known as Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN). Subsequently it was officially registered as an independent voluntary welfare organisation with the Registrar of Societies on 15 January 1991 and as a charity with the Commissioner of Charities on 22 February 1994. SO Singapore is affiliated to the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) and Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC). SO Singapore is recognised by Sport Singapore, formerly known as Singapore Sports Council, as a National Sports Association (NSA). SO Singapore is also a certified Institute of Public Character (IPC) organisation.
