Thank you for your interest in a Northern Arizona Healthcare Foundation sponsorship.
Our healthcare‐related priorities are access to healthcare, chronic medical conditions, and behavioral health/substance abuse.
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 major Foundation award, follow our guidelines on the Grant Support page.
The Foundation supports community organizations that help us advance our mission. Through sponsorships for local organizations and community events, we take pride in giving back to the community that supports us.
Because of the large volume of requests we receive, we ask that 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 the Northern Arizona Healthcare service area including the following counties: Apache, Coconino, Mohave, Navajo, and Yavapai.
Special consideration is given to the programming/event requests that align with our vision, mission, and priorities and provide marketing exposure that helps build brand awareness and positive exposure for the Foundation.
The Northern Arizona Healthcare Foundation mission is to inspire philanthropy to support Northern Arizona Healthcare and its communities. Our vision is a future when every person in our region has equal access to quality healthcare and an opportunity to achieve optimal health.
Funding is only considered for tax‐exempt, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations. Please be able to provide documentation of tax‐exempt status.
ALL requests should be submitted using the online sponsorship form 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.
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:
Number of attendees at the event
Benefits to the community
Number of people directly benefiting from the event proceeds, e.g., “Event proceeds allowed 30 people to receive free dental exams.”
