Gulf Winds Cares
Thank you for your interest in the Gulf Winds Cares Community Involvement program. To request Organization or Event Sponsorship, please complete our Community Sponsorship Form.
With so many great local organizations and charities, we must only support those that adhere to the guidelines below.
Eligible organizations are nonprofit, tax-exempt as defined in section 501(c) 3 of the internal revenue code, or a public service organization or institution. Our Gulf Winds contributions are awarded to qualified nonprofit organizations located in Escambia, Santa Rosa, Leon, Gadsden, Jefferson or Wakulla Counties, Florida, and Escambia County, Alabama.
* Exceptions may include long-standing relationships with partner organizations.
We review sponsorships on an ongoing basis. In order to be able to make the best decisions possible, we advise nonprofit organizations to apply for sponsorship support at least three months in advance of their event. We review requests on a quarterly basis.
Gulf Winds makes in-kind donations of merchandise.
Gulf Winds firmly believes that when we choose to sponsor an organization and/or charity we are choosing to develop a partnership. With this partnership we will provide the requested monetary donation and/or requested in-kind donation of merchandise. A monetary donation should include sponsorship benefits for Gulf Winds while the in-kind donation will include promotional items with the Gulf Winds trademark logo and website. A formal proposal detailing sponsorship benefits is required when submitting a sponsorship request application.
