York Hospital Sponsorship and Donation Policy

York Hospital has a long tradition of supporting nonprofit organizations in York County and the New Hampshire Seacoast. We view these partnerships as an important investment in the health and well-being of the communities we serve and the vitality of our organization.

We sponsor a select number of events each year that align with our mission to improve health and wellness (both physical and mental) in the region. Our strategic plan is the driving force of sponsorship decisions, and the opportunities we fund must make a positive impact on the local communities that we serve.

To learn more about the sponsorship application process and ensure that your project meets our criteria, please carefully consider the guidelines and restrictions below prior to submitting a request.

Application Criteria

There are many worthy causes within York County and the greater Seacoast area. Since York Hospital has limited discretionary funds, we must weigh requests against established criteria for support. While the following list is not inclusive of all support criteria, please use it as a guide:

  • Must be presented by a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization with a history of implementing successful programs.
  • Must allow positive exposure for the York Hospital brand (e.g. logo placement, banners, PSAs, etc.).
  • Should be submitted at least 60 days prior to your event date.
