Our state’s nonprofit, government, social service, and community agencies have laid a solid foundation with the work they are doing to improve the health and well-being of our communities. However, because of our economic climate, there have been increased demands compounded with less public funding. We support and partner with many of these organizations with our sponsorships, donations, and other nonprofit support.
Kaiser Permanente Colorado sponsors events and activities held by community-minded organizations and nonprofits. These efforts should demonstrate a positive effect on the health of Colorado communities, and provide assets for Kaiser Permanente and the partner to further our messages. Sponsored events and activities include marathons, walks, and other community events that allow Coloradans to thrive, and fundraising galas, luncheons, etc. Sponsorship inquiries are generally reviewed in a committee format and proposals in electronic format help expedite evaluation. At minimum, sponsorship proposals should include description of the event/activity; beneficiary of the event, if any; sponsorship costs/levels, and description of the benefits through the sponsorship.

Kaiser Permanente Colorado also supports nonprofits with donations to charitable organizations, particularly in specific times of need or crisis. For example, during the 2012 wildfire season in our state, we donated $90,000 to the American Red Cross to help with relief efforts.
Kaiser Permanente Colorado has a program to donate surplus or gently-used supplies and equipment to nonprofits and community organizations in our state. For example, we have donated blood pressure cuffs and office furniture to community clinics, and we’ve provided medical supplies to Project CURE, a nonprofit headquartered in Colorado that collects and distributes medical supplies and equipment to international destinations of need.
