Sponsorship Request Process
Nebraska Medicine is proud to support the charitable missions of other not-for-profit, community-based organizations. To help us make decisions on the many sponsorship requests we receive, a committee comprised of key stakeholders of Nebraska Medicine meets on a monthly basis to review these requests. Each request is considered individually and within the context of available funds.
If your organization would like to request a charitable contribution from Nebraska Medicine, please submit a written request at least 60 to 90 days in advance of your deadline to allow ample time for consideration.
Please send proposals on your organizational letterhead to:

Nebraska Medicine Community Grant Program
The Nebraska Medicine Community Grant Program is designed to provide financial support to local non-profit, community-based organizations seeking to host events or activities that will address the community’s health needs in at least one of the following three categories:
- Access to Health Care
- Heart Disease/Stroke.
Approved grantees can receive up to $2,000 in grant funding to carry out their community service. All applicants must provide an itemized budget detailing all expenses for their proposed event or activity. Grant funding cannot be used to pay for religious programming, but churches or community centers who wish to host a community health event are welcome to apply and may receive funds to underwrite other costs associated with their event or activity.
Nebraska Medicine’s grant program will prioritize funding for organizations using one or more of the following tactics to improve the health of the community:
- Educational presentations or support groups focused on disease prevention and management
- Health fairs with free or reduced-cost health screenings provided in community-based settings
- Unique or innovative programs and services to reach populations in need
Eligible grant applicant organizations are those defined as tax-exempt, not-for-profit entities by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Grant funds must be used for an event or program that targets an underserved population and will address one of the aforementioned health priorities. To allow time for committee review, application must be submitted 30-60 days in advance of your event. For questions, please contact the Nebraska Medicine department of Corporate and Community Relations at 402-552-2249.
*Internal Nebraska Medicine and UNMC departments are not eligible to apply for these community-based grants.
