Funds raised by or donated to a Local Program or Area must be submitted to the SONH office for deposit with a completed deposit form. Deposits will be processed in three to five days of receipt. A thank you will be sent to all donors and a copy will be provided to the Local Program Coordinator.


Checks should be made payable to Special Olympics New Hampshire. The Local Program’s name should be written in the memo section to ensure proper designation.


Local Programs can create a page to accept donations via First Giving.  Any donations received through the page are credited 100% to your program, as will any transactions fees not covered by donors.  Funds are credited to your account when we receive them (which is typically about 1-2 weeks after donations are made online).

Creating the page is pretty simple. Click here, choose start fundraising then create fundraiser (at the very bottom of the event list). Create (or log into) a first giving account. Select Special Olympics New Hampshire (Manchester, NH) as the nonprofit then follow the prompts to create a page. We recommend naming that page your local program’s name and when setting the end date for the page put something far in the future so that the link won’t expire and you can keep encouraging folks to donate through that page.
