Community Sponsorships

Community Sponsorship Policy and Procedures

Sponsorships are college-based financial support of community non-profit organizations or events that:

  • Align with the mission and vision of Gadsden State
  • Are relevant to our student demographic
  • Enhance the quality of life and meaningful partnerships in the community
  • Raise the profile of the College within the community

Gadsden State may sponsor these types of initiatives as the budget allows:

  • Public health and wellness
  • Education promotion
  • Economic and/or workforce development
  • Youth development

Requirements for sponsorships include:

  • The organization must be a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
  • The organization must fill out an application requesting sponsorships.
  • The organization must be within Gadsden State’s service area.
  • The organization must not have received a sponsorship from Gadsden State within the last 12 months.
  • The organization must provide opportunities for Gadsden State to showcase programs and services (marketing/publicity) in exchange for the sponsorship.

To apply for a sponsorship, organizations are required to include all of the information outlined in the online application. The successful sponsorship requires clear objectives for Gadsden State and the organization applying. A completed application must be submitted a minimum of six weeks prior to the intended event or initiative.
