Every year, Cook Children's Health Care System receives many requests for support from various community groups and organizations. It's our challenge to balance the measure of what we already contribute to our local community as a non-profit healthcare provider with our obligations as one of the area's largest employers. As such, we will do our best to match our limited discretionary funds with community health needs.
Cook Children's sponsors a select number of events that are strongly aligned with its promise to improve the health of every child in the region through the prevention and treatment of illness, disease and injury. Our strategic plan is the driving force of sponsorship decisions, and the opportunities that are ultimately funded must make a positive impact on the local communities that we serve, specifically support our promise and improve pediatric health.
Sponsorship is defined as direct financial or in-kind support for special events, and may include – though not limited to – nonprofit agency fundraisers (breakfasts, luncheons, dinners), speakers series/lectures, fun run/walks, health fairs, golf tournaments or other community activities). To facilitate the process, we ask that one sponsorship request be submitted per organization per fiscal year. We will not accept multiple sponsorships from the same organization; therefore we ask that you look at your sponsorship needs as a comprehensive request for sponsorship.
Please review Cook Children's sponsorship guidelines and if your event falls within these basic parameters, complete the sponsorship request form for formal consideration of Cook Children's sponsorship.
