Donation FAQ

  • Is my donation tax-deductible?
    Yes, Athletes Without Limits is a registered 501(c)3 charity so your donation is tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Your donation is also tax-deductible when you donate through a donation partner site (aka Donor Advised Fund) like Paypal or Network for Good, who will provide you with further details when they send you donation receipts.
  • How is my donation used?
    We are primarily volunteer-run with a virtual office and low overhead so your donation funds programs that help athletes with intellectual impairment compete in high-level and mainstream sport including: guidance on navigating new opportunities to compete at a high level, low cost Virtus/Paralympic Eligibility services, reduced travel costs for Virtus World Championship trips, teams and training opportunities with access to coaching in hub cities and more…
  • Can I donate to a specific sport, program or event?
    If you dedicate your gift to a sport or program of choice and we’ll do our best to focus funding there though not all of our donation partner sites offer a dedication option. As an administratively small nonprofit that works with athletes in multiple sports throughout the US it is difficult to realize economies of scale within a single sport, program or event so general donations help the most. Sometimes events get cancelled, in which case event-focused donations will go towards the rescheduled event or a similar event or program. We are also always working behind the scenes to develop new opportunities for athletes with intellectual impairment…  
  • Can I donate to a specific athlete?
    Athletes Without Limits is a public charity so by law cannot provide tax-deductions for donations intended for a single individual. If you’d like to cover out-of-pocket costs for a specific athlete, you may provide the athlete with the funds directly as a personal gift.
