sponsorship / funding application
All sponsorship and funding requests must be made using the form found at the bottom of this page. No emailed or paper applications will be considered. Applications are reviewed twice per year:
- January 31 (for spring / summer projects, events, or initiatives)
- July 31 (for fall / winter projects, events, or initiatives)
All applicants will be notified via email within four weeks of the application deadline after the requests have been reviewed and decisions have been made. No late applications will be considered.
While we appreciate all requests and thank applicants for thinking of Sunova, we unfortunately cannot support all applications for funding.
While we wish we could fund everyone and everything, it unfortunately just isn’t possible. Funding consideration will be given to applicants that fit the following criteria:
- Organizations, charities, or special events that promote wellness
- Organizations, charities, or special events that serve communities in or around our Sunova branch network
- Organizations, charities, or special events that are currently members of Sunova Credit Union or are willing to become members
If you meet the criteria above, there are a few other things that we’re looking for:
- A partnership that provides exposure to an audience of at least 100 individuals, as well as multiple marketing and / or recognition opportunities
- A sponsorship where the value requested reflects the exposure / recognition provided to Sunova in exchange for the support
- Title sponsorship positioning and / or industry exclusivity where possible
- Long-term partnership opportunities
Consideration cannot be given to applicants:
- Where only one individual benefits
- Where funding does not align with our focus on wellness
- Who may represent a conflict of interest for Sunova or may be seen as controversial in nature
- Who do not provide sufficient notice to meet our application deadlines
- Who provide an incomplete application or insufficient information to properly evaluate the sponsorship opportunity
Recognition for Sunova in exchange for our contribution will be pre-arranged during initial discussions and must be followed during the entire term of the sponsorship. All major sponsorships will be dependent on a sponsorship agreement signed by both parties outlining the terms of the partnership.
Should your major sponsorship request be approved, our marketing department will provide artwork and other related items either electronically or for pick-up at your local branch.
