How to apply for a CAP Sponsorship

Criteria

CAP provides for two types of sponsorships:

  1. Marketing Sponsorships – CAP will support events where there is a water nexus and the ability to promote CAP’s name and mission to event participants. Requests are considered on a case-by-case basis and are reviewed by a committee. The amount funded is tied to the marketing value/exposure received.
  2. Educational Sponsorships – As an active participant in many Arizona communities, CAP believes in the possibilities of our water future through continuous learning and education. CAP will consider supporting organizations in the United States that use the power of education and service to improve the understanding of CAP and Arizona’s critical water supply in CAP’s service counties (Pima, Pinal and Maricopa). The number of sponsorships granted to an agency may be capped per year in order to allow for many different requests from our entire service area.

CAP focuses on specific projects or programs that promote and add value to the scope of services offered by our organization in the following areas:

  • Water and other natural resource education
  • Water and other natural resource conservation
  • Civic and community involvement services related to water and other natural resources

We typically direct our limited sponsorship funds toward activities that are consistent with our mission, are likely to have a broad impact (either through marketing exposure or educational reach) and that promote awareness of CAP.
