Donation and Sponsorship Request Application - Greater Phoenix Area

Fiscal Year 2025 (July 1, 2024 - June 30, 2025)


Dignity Health in Arizona is committed to supporting non-profit organizations for defined purposes that address community health needs that align with our mission, vision and values.  We prioritize donations and sponsorships that are restricted to a community benefit purpose as described on the application form.  

Organizations that address one or more of our identified community health needs will be given greater consideration.  Those identified community health needs are:

  • Access to Healthcare: Financial Security, Immunizations, Maternal/Child Health
  • Affordable Housing/Homelessness
  • Behavioral/Mental Health/Suicide
  • Cancer
  • Chronic Health Conditions: Cardiovascular, Diabetes, Obesity, Oral Health
  • Equity: Health, Racial, Social
  • Nutrition: Food Insecurity, Exercise
  • Substance Abuse/Addiction
  • Safety, Trauma and Violence: Domestic Violence, Human Trafficking, Injury Prevention

Some contributions may be considered “community building,” examples of which are outlined below. Charitable contributions that qualify towards community building as well as sponsorships/donations to arts/cultural organizations or events where a community benefit purpose is not evident will be given less weight when funding decisions are made. 

  • Physical improvements (to the community)
  • Economic development (for low-income, economically distressed areas)
  • Community support
  • Environmental improvements
  • Leadership development/training for community members
  • Coalition building
  • Community health improvement advocacy
  • Workforce development

We receive many requests for financial donations and sponsorships. While supportive in spirit of all approaches that encourage positive community improvements, we are limited in providing financial support to projects we view as most closely aligned with our core mission, values and addressing community benefit objectives.
