As a healthcare leader in the Cleveland area, MetroHealth consistently receives requests from community agencies and nonprofit organizations seeking sponsorship funding for various events or programs.
These guidelines were developed to ensure funds are being allocated efficiently and are directed to organizations that compliment the mission of MetroHealth. Each request received is reviewed and evaluated based on the criteria below.
