UPDATE SEPT. 25, 2023: Sponsorship requests are now closed for 2023. We look forward to reconnecting with you in January 2024.
Kalamazoo Community Foundation (KZCF) supports nonprofit events and activities that provide opportunities for people to connect, celebrate, learn, collaborate and grow as a community.
Our sponsorships provide opportunities for mutually beneficial partnerships, especially in our community investment priorities of equity and education. Preference is given to events, activities and organizations that advance our community’s shared goals of racial, social and economic justice.
We sponsor events and activities held by 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in Kalamazoo County.
Requests are due the last Monday of each month.
Submit your sponsorship request at least two (2) months in advance of your event or activity via our online form. This will allow the Sponsorship Committee time to review your request and make it easier to receive funds in a timely manner.
- Our typical sponsorship ranges from approximately $500 to $1,500.
- We ask that instead of requesting an amount, please share a range with us (and associated sponsorship recognition opportunities), to help us determine the best level of sponsorship.
- While we know that golf outings and distance runs/walks/races are valuable strategies for fundraising and community engagement, we do not have the capacity to sponsor those events.
The Sponsorship Committee will convene to review sponsorship requests shortly after the due date and decisions will be communicated via email.
Please submit your request by filling out the form below. Once you have filled out the form, you will receive an automated email confirming receipt of your request. A member of our team will contact you with a response after the Sponsorship Committee has reviewed your request.
