Special Olympics is the world’s largest disability sports organisation, transforming lives with sport.

  • We created a new corporate fundraising strategy and have provided outsourced corporate fundraising services since 2010.
  • Our support extends to strategic advice on all other revenue streams to include trusts, digital fundraising, major donors and fundraising events.
  • We were instrumental in raising £1.2m in sponsorship for the charity’s 2013 flagship National Games and are currently fundraising lead for the 2017 event.
  • Other lucrative new partnerships (UK and global) secured include charity of the year status with Paddy Power, UK Active and CMS Cameron McKenna.
  • We won and managed an official partnership with the British 10k London Run raising £200,000 and recruiting 2,000 runners.
  • We manage the charity’s National Development Committee and Executive Games Development Committee – groups of senior executives volunteering time and providing connections.
