It really is true that a picture says a thousand words! Clipped Wings® is very proud of our Parent Grant Program which provides funds to assist with travel expenses to enable the parents of Special Olympics Athletes to attend National and World Games. We are glad we can help make it possible for them to watch, and cheer as their champions compete at the highest levels in their sport.
The Parent Grant Program is our Clipped Wings® National Philanthropy. Before each World or National Special Olympics Games, Clipped Wings® accepts applications from parents or guardians of Athletes. The parents are chosen by a very dedicated Grant Selection Committee comprised of our members.
After the Grant Winners are notified, we receive many heartfelt comments, “Thank you Clipped Wings® for continuing your valuable support for the athletes of Special Olympics. It is truly wonderful that you help provide athlete families the opportunity to be with their athlete for a once in a lifetime event.”
