SOWI Local Programs

Local Programs are integral to everything we do at Special Olympics Wisconsin, including the Polar Plunge!

This year, we offer a new revenue share program exclusive to SOWI Local Programs that reinvest funding into your chapter to best deliver the Special Olympics experience for all participants.

2023 Revenue Share Program

  • Local Program teams raising up to $7,500 and receive 25% cash back
  • Local Program teams raising between $7,500 and $10,000 and receive 35% cash back
  • Local Program teams raising $10,000 or more and receive 50% cash back

Cash back rebates can be used for transportation, team parties, uniforms and much more!
