Parent Grants


Before each World or National Special Olympic Games, Clipped Wings® accepts applications from parents or guardians of Athletes.


Golfers and other athletes have parental support because of our grants.

The applicants are reviewed by a Clipped Wings® Parent Grant Committee to receive grants for air transportation, hotel or  other expenses, enabling them to travel to watch their special Athlete compete.
