Sponsorship and Grant Request Process
Nebraska Medicine is proud to support the mission of other non-profit organizations whose efforts are focused on serving underserved or vulnerable populations, addressing the leading causes of death in Nebraska, or supporting the needs of our patients or this community.
Corporate Sponsorship Requests
If your non-profit organization would like to request sponsorship funding from Nebraska Medicine, please submit a written request on organizational letterhead to:
Attn: Community Relations
Funding priority will be given to organizations aligned with current community health improvement initiatives, organizations directly supporting our patient population, or causes dedicated to serving the underserved or other vulnerable populations. Each request is reviewed individually and within the context of available funds. Please submit your proposal at least 60 days in advance of your event or activity to allow for review of your request.
