Below you will find a frequently asked questions and answers about becoming a Special Olympics Maryland sponsor or donor. If you have additional questions, please e-mail Julie Oltmann, Donor Relations Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special Olympics Maryland received 64% of the funds raised in 2011 through telemarketing, after all expenses were paid. The reason we do not receive more is that for every person who agrees to give a gift, there are six to seven who choose not to give, and each of these calls have an expense.
Each call costs Special Olympics Maryland approximately $1.50. If you make a pledge, the cost of mailing the invoice, receiving the gift and managing the data are added. We are budgeted to receive $300,000 in net revenue from telemarketing during 2012, which is crucial to maintain our program.
