Toys“R”Us and the Toys“R”Us Children’s Fund

For more than 15 years, Toys“R”Us and the Toys“R”Us Children’s Fund together have supported Special Olympics and the littlest athletes, primarily through grant funding to advance the Young Athletes™ Program.

In 2015, Toys"R"Us significantly expanded its ongoing partnership with Special Olympics with an initiative centered around #MyFirstSportsMoment. Through a $1.25 million commitment from the Toys"R"Us Children's Fund, the company served as a Games Level sponsor of the 2015 Special Olympics World Games, held in Los Angeles, CA. The Toys"R"Us Children's Fund also awarded a $500,000 grant to Special Olympics to aid in the  five-year plan to strengthen and expand the Young Athletes Program in the U.S. and around the globe. As part of the partnership expansion, a recent fundraising campaign raised more than $2 million.

Toys"R"Us was a Founding Partner of the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games held in New Jersey through a $1 million grant from the Toys"R"Us Children's Fund. Additionally the company served as the Presenting Sponsor of the first-ever Young Athletes Festival, which debuted at the 2014 Games.

Since the partnership began, donations from Toys"R"Us, Inc., the Toys"R"Us Children's Fund and customers have provided $5.3 million to Special Olympics.
