Our commitment doesn't end when a patient leaves our office; we recognize that the best way to accomplish our mission is through support of worthy community organizations and events.
Because we get a high volume of requests for donations and sponsorships each year, it is necessary for us to follow defined criteria when it comes to allocating our support. While we would love to be able to approve every request, the reality is that we cannot accommodate everyone.
The following sponsorship criteria are designed to help determine what organizations will be considered. These guidelines ensure that the process is fair, equitable and supports our mission to improve the health of those in the Eastern Iowa region.
Please review the criteria below to help you determine whether your event or organization is an ideal candidate for our support. If you feel like it’s a perfect fit, then follow the instructions on requesting donation or sponsorship.
We value partnerships that help us further our mission to improve the health and quality of life of the communities we serve. In doing so, we allocate resources to support special events and programs of organizations that:
- Relate to health promotion and disease prevention
- Relate to community outreach or special social and welfare needs
- Support community development
As a rule, Physicians’ Clinic of Iowa does NOT support the following types of organizations or activities through corporate contributions or sponsorships:
- Individuals or individual endeavors
- Activities located outside our geographic service area
- Political, religious, fraternal, or labor organizations
- K-12 athletics and extracurricular activities
- Objectives which are not aligned with our mission or values, or are incompatible with our brand image
- Capital requests
- Duplication of multiple requests from the same organization
- Multi-year requests
HOW TO APPLY
