Request a Corporate Sponsorship

Investing in our community provides us with the opportunity to strengthen our relationships among community members – neighbors, businesses, our employees, and those organizations who enable us to expand our mission of providing “Good Help.” Our sponsorship efforts work to provide community benefit by assisting organizations that support healthier communities, healthcare initiatives, Catholic identity and community transformation. In addition, we build relationships with organizations with missions that complement these focus areas. By combining our resources with strong, enduring relationships, we are able to maximize our support of the community.

Our Guiding Principles

To have the greatest impact, we focus our efforts on:

  • Building Healthy Communities: Event and community benefit support of organizations partnering with Bon Secours Mission Department in the delivery of critical programs and services for the community.
  • Healthcare: Support organizations providing healthcare-related education, research and direct services to the community.
  • Catholic Identity: Support of Catholic-related organizations on behalf of their work in the local community.
  • Diversity & Inclusion: Support of initiatives that embrace the unique gifts, traditions, and perspectives of all individuals in accordance with the mission and values of Bon Secours.
  • Community Transformation/Ecological & Green: Support of community organizations focused on transformative issues impacting the quality of life and holistic health in our service area.  Support of internal/external ecological and green initiatives that address and improve community health.
