UConn Health receives many requests for sponsorship support in the form of events such as dinners, runs/walks, health fairs, or advertisements in programs. Sponsorships, like other uses of UConn Health funds, must be supported by a clear business purpose and a benefit to UConn Health. Benefits may include, for example, enhancement of the UConn Health’s reputation, individual recognition, advancement, advertising opportunities, or increased visibility in the community.

To provide guidance to all UConn Health departments, a sponsorship policy and sponsorship request form have been created that describe the process of evaluating all sponsorship opportunities. All sponsorship requests must be reviewed and pre-approved by senior leadership.

All requests for sponsorship must be submitted to sponsorship@uchc.edu with the following:

  • A completed Sponsorship Request Form; and
  • Sponsorship documents that provide a description of the event and expected attendance, breakdown of all sponsorship levels, and organizational benefit.
  • Requests for first-time sponsorships must be received at least four months prior to the event or sponsorship deadline.
  • Requests for sponsorships funded in the past must be received at least two months prior to the event or sponsorship deadline.
