Special Olympics & Yachting Program

Special Olympics

Engel & Völkers is a proud champion of Special Olympics, specifically focused on creating more inclusive communities through its Athlete Leadership and Play Unified programs. We are committed to giving back to and investing in the neighborhoods our clients desire because these too are the places in which we live, we play and we raise our families.

Special Olympics athletes contribute to our story. From them we learn, we think differently and realize what we can accomplish as individuals, as local brokerages and together across time zones and borders—it's a common good that unites us. Every hour given, every dollar donated, every kind word spoken and every door opened creates opportunities for those who need it most. We believe that in order to lead, we must empower others to do the same.


Athlete Leadership

Athlete Leadership empowers Special Olympics athletes to develop leadership skills and utilize their voices and abilities to undertake meaningful roles in their communities. We are happy to include local athletes in our shops and national events to share their stories, practice their public speaking skills and recognize their athletic achievements with celebratory events in our shops.


Play Unified

Engel & Völkers is a proud champion of the Special Olympics Play Unified Campaign. Dedicated to promoting social inclusion through shared sports training and competition experiences, Unified Sports joins people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. It was inspired by a simple principle: training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding.


Contribution at Closing

Many of our advisors donate a portion of their commissions to Special Olympics on behalf of their clients. This simple program means that every time we help our clients to realize their real estate goals, we are helping a Special Olympian get just a bit closer to theirs.
