Sponsorship Request

Thank you for your interest in a Northern Arizona Healthcare Foundation sponsorship.

Our health‐related priorities are the priorities of the region: decreasing the incidence and impacts of chronic medical conditions, improving behavioral health outcomes, and improving access to care.

To make the best use of our resources as a non‐profit corporation, we focus our support on organizations that can make the largest impact on our region’s health needs and/or best help us build awareness and perception of the Foundation’s brand.

This Sponsorship Request document focuses on events and activities requiring funding in amounts less than $5,000. If you would like to apply for a larger Foundation award, follow our guidelines on the Grant Support page.

The Foundation supports community organizations that help us advance our mission. Through sponsorships of local organizations and community events, we take pride in giving back to the community that supports us.

Eligibility Guidelines

Because of the large volume of requests we receive, we recommend you review these eligibility guidelines prior to submitting a request:

  • Your event must take place within the Foundation’s service area, and provide services to some or all the following counties: Apache, Coconino, Mohave, Navajo, and Yavapai.

  • Special consideration is given to requests that align with our vision, mission, and priorities and provide marketing exposure that helps build brand awareness and positive exposure for the Foundation.

Other considerations:

  • ALL requests should be submitted using the online sponsorship form. In the case of event sponsorships, the form must be submitted at least eight weeks prior to your event date. Please apply early enough to make sure your own operational deadlines are met, i.e. print deadlines.

  • Funding is awarded only to tax‐exempt, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations. Please be able to provide documentation of tax‐exempt status.

  • Applications received by the 10th of each month will be reviewed that same month. Applications received after the 10th will be reviewed the following month.

  • Organizations are allowed to submit one sponsorship application per calendar year and are eligible to receive sponsorship funds for one event per year.

  • The maximum amount for a sponsorship request is $4,999.

  • The Foundation requires a Post‐Event Report from you within 30 days after your event including:

    • the number of attendees at the event,

    • benefits to the community,

    • the number of people directly benefiting from the event proceeds, e.g., “Event proceeds allowed 30 people to receive free dental exams,” and

    • the marketing elements referencing Northern Arizona Healthcare Foundation (social media posts, website hits, number and type of printed materials, radio ads, print advertisements, signage, etc.)
