Sponsorship & Donation Requests

2023 Community Sponsorship Program Paused

Thank you for your interest in Rochester Regional Health's Community Sponsorship Program. At this time, we are unable to entertain sponsorship requests for 2023 and the portal to submit requests remains closed. We encourage you to check back throughout the year for updates and changes.

Welcome and thank you for considering Rochester Regional Health as a potential partner for your organization.

Rochester Regional is committed to supporting the community by sponsoring activities, programs and services that benefit the residents of the region. Working together with our community partners, including local health departments and other hospitals, we are focused on disease prevention, promoting access to quality healthcare services, and improving the overall quality of life for our communities.

We would like to assist organizations in our service area by supporting their efforts to care for the people that they serve in a multitude of areas, including health, education, arts, and social justice. Areas of focus for Rochester Regional Health in 2023 are cardiology, oncology, orthopedics, and women’s health, and applications related to those areas will be given greater consideration.

We use this online submission process to objectively evaluate each sponsorship and donation request for all Rochester Regional Health entities including, but not limited to Rochester General Hospital, Unity Hospital, United Memorial Medical Center, Newark-Wayne Community Hospital, Clifton Springs Hospital and Clinic and all related organizations and subsidiaries.

Due to the high volume of requests we receive, we are no longer able to accept requests via any other method.
