Community Contributions Program for in-person events resumes at Lee Health

Sponsorships for in-person events had been temporarily paused due to COVID-19
June 10, 2021 - Lee Health is pleased to announce it is reopening the review process of corporate sponsorship requests for in-person events. In mid-April, the health system resumed sponsorship requests for virtual and outdoor events. All sponsorships for events had been temporarily paused due to COVID-19.
Any interested organization can now apply online by visiting Lee Health’s Community Contributions Program website at Instructions and eligibility requirements are listed on the site.
Lee Health is dedicated to giving back to the community and, through its Community Contributions Program, provides support to registered 501(c)(3) organizations in Southwest Florida. 
Lee Health will consider requests for support of new and ongoing programs, education and/or awareness or other community outreach activities that support community health and human services, education and workforce development, and other community needs. 
Each request will be considered for particular alignment with any of the following health priorities as identified by our most recent Community Health Needs Assessment.
Mental Health & Substance Use Disorder
Nutrition, Physical Activity & Weight
Cardiovascular & Respiratory Diseases
Access to Healthcare Services
For in-person event consideration, Lee Health will review COVID-19 precautions in alignment with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and Lee Health Infection Prevention. Requests for support should include COVID-19 precautions in the application to expedite the process. 
Guidance from the CDC states that fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance. For unvaccinated people who are attending a small, outdoor gathering with fully vaccinated and unvaccinated people, they are safest when they wear a mask, stay 6 feet apart and wash their hands frequently, according to the CDC. For more information, visit the CDC’s Choosing Safer Activities page.
