How our sponsorships work
Welcome to the Toho Water Authority sponsorship request page. Please read our sponsorship information below.
Goals of our Annual Sponsorship Program
Support organizations primarily in one of these five categories: Environmental Stewardship, Social Services, Investment in Youth, Community Outreach Programs or Community Events.
Select organizations having the greatest impact within the community we serve.
Provide our Board feedback regarding each organization's effectiveness.
Provide guidance to new organizations interested in participating in future years.
Encourage the packaging of sponsored events together in one sponsorship with a total requested amount rather than individual sponsorships.
What we do not sponsor
Organizations that are not public charities – i.e. not tax-exempt under paragraph 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code;
Political candidates, committees or organizations;
Churches and religious or sectarian organizations, unless engaged in a significant project benefiting the entire community;
Organizations that discriminate against people because of their age, race, creed, gender, handicap, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity or national origin; and
Events/programs outside of our service area (exceptions may apply if event is water industry related).
The application process and submittal date
We invite organizations to submit their sponsorship request from June 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020.
All submissions will be reviewed by an internal panel and given scores by a review committee to assess alignment with Toho Water Authority and its role in the community.
The Board approves, amends or denies the requests, if it so chooses during the September Board meeting of each year prior to the start of the fiscal year on October 1.
Applying organizations are notified of the decision by email. Score sheets will be available upon request for organizations to improve future sponsorship submissions.
Sponsored organizations should plan to submit a brief report and may be invited to present it to the Board covering their sponsored event/program and overall goal achievement status sometime during the fiscal year of approved request.
Please use our convenient Sponsorship Application Form to make your sponsorship request.
