It is the mission of Creative Opportunities Unlimited to support members and teams participating in the Odyssey of the Mind School Program by providing scholarships, financial assistance and other services in order to enable teams to succeed in their continued quest for creativity and excellence.
Creative Opportunities Unlimited (COU) was founded in 1999 to support Odyssey of the Mind's teams and team members. This non-profit organization was created by six individuals, who, along with a few more recent additions, bring a wealth of experience in education, accounting, business management, computing and other real-life skills. Together, the COU board members have a total of over 100 years of experience with the Odyssey of the Mind creative problem solving program.
COU provides the opportunity for individuals and businesses to make tax deductible donations that will support the Odyssey of the Mind's program. COU operates independently of Creative Competitions, Inc. (CCI), the owners of the Odyssey of the Mind's School Program. Funds raised by COU are used exclusively to benefit students and the non-profit organizations offering the Odyssey of the Mindâ program in local areas. COU board members are volunteers; they receive no compensation.
Donations from corporations and individuals are sought and encouraged. COU has assisted North American and international teams in their World Finals fundraising efforts and has awarded scholarships at the Odyssey of the Mind's World Finals. With your help, the future is…UNLIMITED!
