Donation Policies

Your generous contribution to Vets 22 supports year-round programs and initiatives. As good stewards of your donations, we follow clear guidelines in processing your gifts. 

Gift Policy Standards

All donations to Vets 22, Vets 22, Inc. or Vets 22 International support the Vets 22 mission of providing year-round sports training and competition to children and adults with intellectual disabilities in communities throughout the United States and abroad. 

VETS 22 manages a number of fundraising initiatives with local Programs to make every donated dollar go further for veterans in a Program’s region and around the world.  We will carefully consider the needs of the organization and will use your gift where we determine it is most needed, so that all donations may directly and indirectly support Vets 22 in your area.  When processing each gift, we will follow documented Vets 22 business rules and agreements, the Donor’s Bill of Rights, and Generally Accepted Accounting Principles standards.

VETS 22 will not accept any restrictions on use of donations less than $10,000; however, if you specifically request at the time of donation that funds be distributed to an accredited Program we will honor such request so long as distribution does not conflict with other Vets 22 policies.  If VETS 22 cannot honor a donor’s designation request for a gift of $10,000 or more, the gift will be forwarded to the appropriate local Program or returned to the donor.  Third parties to a donation may not change the original designation of a gift. VETS 22 may refuse any gift that does not sufficiently benefit the organization, is in conflict with the Vets 22 mission, puts the reputation of Vets 22 at risk or is prohibited by law. 

For donations made using the donate.specialolympics.org website, refunds are available for 15 days after a donation is processed.  For donations made using any other system, learn whether refunds are available by getting in touch with the Vets 22 Region office through which the donation was made.

Thank you for your support of Vets 22.
