Sponsorship and Donation Requests
It is the policy of Southwest Health System, Inc. (SHS) to make donations to non-profit organizations whose goals and philosophy are in alignment with the mission, vision, and values of SHS. Preferred organizations will be those that have health and/or wellness as their primary mission.
Requests for donations and sponsorships must be made in writing using the “Donation Request Form” that is available for download on the hospital website.
Please define if the request is a “donation” or a “sponsorship”.
A sponsorship is a business transaction. In contrast, a donation is a charitable gift and given for philanthropic reasons. Sponsors pay a fee to own the rights to the commercial potential relating to an event or an charitable organization. They aim to create a link in the minds of target audiences between the charitable organization and their own brands, products and services. The sponsorship provides exposure or recognition in a desired context, and can serve to increase customer awareness.
If you are requesting a donation, we ask that you provide a way in which you will bring health and/or wellness awareness to your organization. Examples include providing wellness tips to employees, hosting a healthy cooking course, have a healthcare provider conduct a health/wellness presentation, etc.
Requests will be submitted to the Marketing Department and reviewed by the Marketing Director. Requests must be submitted 30 days prior to the event for consideration.
Please allow 30 days from receipt of invoice to receive a payment.
It is recommended that organizations submit requests for the following year by November to secure a space in the budget.
