Athletes can be as young as five and there is no upper age limit. Individuals who compete in Special Olympics develop improved physical fitness, motor skills and greater self confidence. They exhibit courage and enthusiasm and build lasting friendships. These life skills enhance their ability to live normal productive lives. The Special Olympics movement can ultimately transform communities by inspiring people to open their minds, accept and include people with intellectual disabilities.
Special Olympics Waikato is looking for a self motivated and bubbly person who is able to seek out sponsorship, funding and grants. We have all the required paperwork including Audited Accounts. But we need someone with the time and skill to "show us the money!".
It is a great role for someone who has experience in fundraising and would love to give back to the sport by securing more funding.
Good administration skills and an understanding of the NFP fundraining process.
Mature and friendly.
You need empathy with the athletes and the ability to help - through fundraising - them to be better at their sport with fun as well.
Committee meetings once a month. Time to complete applications.
The first step is to express your interest by filling out the form below. We will then put you in touch directly with the organisation for more information on the role and how to proceed.
