Community Support Criteria
St. Luke’s University Health Network’s Community Support Criteria

- Promote health, wellness and healthy lifestyles
- Improve access to care for underserved or at-risk populations
In the area of education, we will consider supporting programs that:
- Provide an innovative approach to health-related education
- Encourage participation in health-related careers, particularly among minority and disadvantaged populations
We generally do not financially support:
- Religious organizations
- Political activities
- Sports organizations
- Travel costs
- Multi-year pledges
- Golf outings
- Public and private schools
- Government agencies
Organizations that meet the stated criteria may fill out our online donation request form. Please include: supporting materials outlining the details of sponsorship opportunities; current 501(c)(3) not-for-profit status; a brief description of the organization and its purpose; and a clear statement of the project including the population to be served and expected outcomes.
Requests for sponsorships are approved by a committee, comprised of individuals from within the organization who share an interest in our community and a desire to help St. Luke’s fulfill its health care mission.
Requests are reviewed monthly by the committee. Please submit your request a minimum of three months in advance of the event date.
