Community Sponsorship/Partnership Request Form

Thank you for your interest in seeking support from Regional Health. The health and well-being of the communities we serve is important to Regional Health. We believe in growing strong partnerships and consider sponsorships an investment that supports our purpose of “Helping Patients and Communities Live Well.”

Guiding Principles
Funding priority is given to requests that support the overall objective of improving and sustaining quality of life and living. 

Regional Health considers all applications for sponsorship without discrimination based on race, color, religion, or age.

Events and programs that address one or more of the following areas will be given priority for sponsorship funding:    

  • Focus on health promotion and disease prevention that improve health and wellness of the patients and communities we serve
  • Enable long-term community capacity building and sustainability
  • Programs, events, and organizations who demonstrate partnership building and collaboration
  • Focus on special social and welfare needs such as homelessness, youth education, care for the poor and underserved
  • Requests that cover a broad range of Regional Health’s service area

Regional Health may be able to provide contributions in the form of in-kind gifts. In-kind gifts are goods or services that do not involve a monetary contribution and may include the following: meeting room space, programs, speakers, health screenings, volunteers and other services.

Strategic and financial priorities can change, which means previous approval does not guarantee future financial or in-kind assistance. Requests are reviewed within the context of available funds.

Regional Health does not provide sponsorship funding for the following:

  • Advertising
  • Events or services outside our geographic service area
  • For-profit business organizations or events
  • Individuals
  • Objectives that do not aligned with our purpose
  • Religious or political groups or events/activities
  • Regional Health physician and/or caregiver personal objectives (i.e. supporting a specific caregiver’s child’s sporting event a program that does not meet the overall community or regional focus)
