Goals of our Sponsorship Program
Make the sponsorship application and review process more informative to our Board.
Create a convenient online application process to save time.
Increase sponsored organization accountability.
Select organizations having the greatest impact.
Provide the board feedback regarding 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.
The application process and submittal date
We invite organizations to submit their sponsorship request by the last week in June.
Board approves, amends or denies the request, if it so chooses during the first board meeting in October each year.
Applying organizations are notified of the decision by email.
Sponsored organizations should plan to submit a brief report and may be invited to present it to the Board covering their sponsored event and overall goal achievement status sometime during the fiscal year of approved request.
Please use our Sponsorship Application Form to make your sponsorship request.
