Special Olympics Rhode Island has earned a 2020 Platinum Seal by adding information to our Nonprofit Profile
on GuideStar. By sharing these metrics, we’re helping the sector move beyond simplistic financial ratios to assess
We chose to display quantitative metrics such as number of children and adults with intellectual disabilities served
each year, number of children with intellectual disabilities (ages 2-7) participating annually in a sports-play program
for physical fitness and gross motor skills development, and number of community volunteers, with or without an
intellectual disability, who volunteered his/her time to support the organization in any capacity at least once during
the calendar year.
We’re proud to use GuideStar Platinum to share our full and complete story withthe world. To reach the Platinum level,
we added extensive information to our NonprofitProfile: basic contact and organizational information; in-depth financial
information;quantitative information about goals, strategies, and progress toward our mission.
Plus, we’ve provided fresh information to 200+ charitable websites and applications that use GuideStar data,
such as AmazonSmile, Facebook, and Network for Good.
