  • The costs associated with virtual formats to host one-day fundraising events.
  • One-day neighborhood or community events held in New Haven, Hamden, West Haven and East Haven that encourage resident engagement.
  • Sponsorships may be awarded to neighborhood or community groups as well as nonprofits.

Not Eligible for Sponsorship

  • Requests for conferences and workshops are generally considered through the Small Grants process, not through the event sponsorship process.
  • Walks, races and golf tournaments.

Award Amounts

  • Sponsorship awards will are available up to $2,500 per event.


  • Applications for sponsorships are accepted on a rolling basis based on availability of funding.

Please note that this is a very competitive process which receives many requests. As a result, the sponsorship process is typically closed by September each year.
