Special Needs Youth

A Gift to the Special Olympics

In March of 2014, Perfect Sense Digital launched Jordan's official website. In conjunction with the launch, the Jordan Spieth Charitable Trust announced Special Olympics as the recipient of its inaugural gift.

As the world's largest sports organization for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, Special Olympics provides year-round training and competitions to more than 4.2 million special athletes. Jordan has spent the last few years supporting the Jesuit Special Games, an event modeled after Special Olympics, in his hometown of Dallas, TX. He recognizes the impact that supporting such organizations has in the lives of young athletes.

“My sister Ellie is a great example of the types of accomplishments these capable young people can accomplish when given the right outlet,” Spieth noted. “The Special Olympics combines two of my passions, sports and special needs, in an outlet that will continue to reach countless people. I am honored to have them receive our first charitable contribution.”

Jordan participated in the 2013 AT&T National Pro-Am as part of his partnership with Perfect Sense Digital. The Pro-Am event partnered professional golfers like Jordan with Special Olympics, First Tee, and Troops First Foundation athletes. At the Northwestern Mutual Tournament in December 2013, he also played with Special Olympics and First Tee golfers. These one-day events are a celebration of the incredible talents of these remarkable individuals.
