About Sponsorships

Funding Requirements

Sponsorship Requests

  • Must be submitted at least 60 days in advance of when the funding decision is needed by the organization and are accepted on a rolling basis. Sage reserves the right to decline any applications not adhering to the deadline.
  • Must clearly identify the tangible benefit(s) offered to Sage.
  • Must be reasonable for the activities proposed and consistent with comparable meetings or events.
  • Must include an estimate of the requesting organization's annual total expenditures.
  • Will only be considered if the submission form is complete and all required documentation is included.

Review Process & Decision

In all cases, Sage notifies applicants by email. Sage’s approval is based on several criteria including, but not limited to, our funding availability, areas of interest alignment, and the event details and agenda. All recipient organizations must abide by the terms and conditions as outlined in the Letter of Agreement (LOA), which is issued electronically to an authorized signatory of the organization once the application is approved. The organization must agree to the terms of the LOA before the start date and Sage may not receive any benefit(s) prior to LOA execution. Payment will be issued upon execution of the LOA.


Within 60 days of the request end date, recipient organizations must complete a reconciliation confirming receipt of funds and attesting that Sage received the tangible benefits described in the request and LOA. An organization’s failure to appropriately submit a reconciliation by the due date may delay or prohibit future funding of applications.
