Join and Support Special Olympics at the Same Time.

Nextdoor (, the free and private social network for neighborhoods, has partnered with Special Olympics Nevada (SONV) to bring the nonprofit organization’s mission, events, and opportunities directly to members’ virtual doorsteps.

On Nextdoor, neighbors create private websites for their neighborhoods where they can ask questions, get to know one another, and exchange local advice and recommendations. Beginning on Wednesday, April 5, thousands of Nextdoor neighborhoods across Nevada will begin receiving hyperlocal information about the latest SONV competitions, fundraising events, volunteer opportunities, and more. In addition, Nextdoor will donate $1 to SONV for each new registered user using the specific sign-up link:

“We’re honored to partner with SONV, an organization that is truly creating positive change in local communities across Nevada,” said Steve Wymer, Vice President of Communications and Policy at Nextdoor. “We look forward to serving as a critical communication tool and catalyst for SONV, the volunteers who bring their events to life, and the thousands of local children and adults they support.”

SONV provides free year-round sports competitions and training, educational programs and health resources to 3,120 children and adults with intellectual disabilities across the state. The organization hosts 35 competitions in nine different sports and relies on the support of donors, sponsors and more than 3,500 volunteers to continue its mission and grow to reach more athletes.

“We are excited for the opportunity to partner with Nextdoor and greatly appreciate their generosity,” said David Solo, president and CEO of SONV. “We are working to support children and adults with intellectual disabilities in every city, town and community – we are your neighbors. Partnering with Nextdoor is a perfect fit.”
