Sponsorships

Kaiser Permanente's mission is to provide high-quality, affordable health care and improve the health of our members and the communities we serve. One way we deliver on our mission is to partner with local community organizations whose missions are aligned with ours. Many of these partnerships are bolstered with financial support through grants and sponsorships.

Please access Mosaic to submit an application form requesting support for sponsored events and activities including marathons, walks, fundraising galas, luncheons, breakfasts, and similar events.

If you are seeking funding for programmatic or other support, please visit our Grants page.

Current focus areas
