Community Sponsorship Guidelines

In order to streamline the partnership process, only requests that come through this portal will be considered for sponsorship support. 

Please read the following carefully as our application process and criteria for sponsorship have changed:

Criteria for Sponsorship

Mission Alignment - The organization's mission and use of funds aligns with MetroHealth’s mission and values.

Priority Areas - Request should relate to one or more of these priority areas and clearly illustrate how MetroHealth’s sponsorship dollars will help improve health outcomes:

  1. Education: Providing services and support to help children thrive educationally.
  2. Health: Supporting health care, research and/or healthy life options. 
  3. Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Supporting efforts to overcome systemic inequality. 
  4. Community growth: Providing opportunities for neighborhoods to grow and thrive and provide residents with more opportunities. 

Robust Partnership - There are opportunities for mutually beneficial partnerships beyond a once a year event.

MetroHealth will not sponsor:

  • Individuals
  • Golf Tournaments
  • Religious or Fraternal Organizations
  • Political activities or campaigns
  • Organizations without current 501(c)3 tax exempt status 

 

Applications will be reviewed semi-annually. Next deadline for submissions will be April 29, 2022.  Submission does not guarantee sponsorship.

Organizations awarded sponsorship must submit a post-event/program report that outlines how the sponsorship positively impacted health outcomes.
