The Friendship Tree endowment was also created to ensure a solid foundation for future Special Olympics New Mexico athletes and families. The Friendship Tree, which follows the same philosophy as The Family Tree, allows Special Olympics New Mexico friends to become an even more integral part of the Special Olympics New Mexico family. Contributors help to broaden the base of restricted endowment financial support for Special Olympics New Mexico, thereby securing sports opportunities for future generations of athletes. With a gift of $250 (Giver of Courage), $500 (Giver of Joy), $1,000 (Giver of Hope) or $2,500 (Giver of Life) our friends will join the ranks of a very special group of people. Special Olympics New Mexico Friendship Tree contributors embody the spirit of sport and truly inspire greatness among our athletes.
