Sponsorship, Membership, and Community Engagement Policy and Guidelines

As New Hampshire’s only academic health system and the state’s largest private employer, we are dedicated to supporting the communities we serve. We support local, nonprofit community organizations by providing financial contributions via marketing sponsorships and/or offering Dartmouth Health employee non-profit engagement.

In keeping with our corporate mission, we aim to advance health through research, education, clinical practice, and community partnerships. Our Sponsorship policy ensures that all Dartmouth Health sponsorships, board involvement, and engagement opportunities are coordinated and aligned with our organizational goals and strategic plan.

Dartmouth Health’s partnerships & sponsorships will maximize the opportunity for organizational visibility and will foster long-term community relationships within our budget and resource limitations.

Sponsorship, membership, and community engagement guidelines

We will use the following guidelines when reviewing requests for sponsorships and organization engagement initiatives:

  • The major focus of our support will be on health-related causes and on community, civic, educational, diversity, and economic endeavors if these support our institutional priorities and meet sponsorship guidelines. Sponsorships will be aligned with engagement opportunities or as part of a long-term community partnership, when possible.
  • All requests must be submitted via the Dartmouth Health sponsorship application l (link at the bottom of this page). There is a formal review process, after which, a member of our partnerships and sponsorships marketing team will respond to the applicant within three weeks of the request.
  • All requests must be submitted at least six weeks prior to the event or start of the initiative for which dollars are being requested.
