Scandiuzzi Krebs is pleased to provide sponsorship opportunities for general operating support to culture and community building organizations based in Washington State that have an annual operating budget of under $250,000.

Sponsorship Amount: Ranging in value from $2,000 – $4,000
Number of Sponsorships: Multiple
Open Application Period: 6/11/2024 – 8/12/2024


Am I eligible?

We accept applications from both non-profit, fiscally-sponsored, and for-profit organizations (any for-profit business must be a culture and community building organization that is BIPOC owned, operates under $250,000 annually, and can demonstrate that they are doing social good).

How do you decide who gets a Sponsorship?

Our funding decisions will prioritize Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) – led and serving organizations, organizations that can clearly outline their impact in their communities, and organizations that demonstrate a commitment to racial justice work. (For more information on what that might look like for your org, visit this website). We welcome applications from newer organizations, wherever you are in your journey.

Wasn’t this called a grant in previous years or is this something different? 
In order to include small BIPOC-owned businesses who are serving our community, we have switched from a grants to sponsorship model. For applicants, nothing is different, but the pool is wider for those who might not be a non-profit or fiscally sponsored. For recipients, the only difference is that they are required to announce our sponsorship of them publicly, either in a social media post, email to their community, or something similar.
How Does A Sponsorship Work?

If you are selected for a sponsorship, there will be no reporting needed, but you are consenting to announce our sponsorship of your organization at least once in your Marketing (either in a newsletter blast, social media post, or the like) and you are consenting to our use of your organization’s name and logo in our sponsorship announcements.

I’ve already received a sponsorship, can I apply again?

If you have received an award from SK in the past 2 years (2022 or 2023), we ask that you refrain from applying to give other organizations more opportunity.

When will I hear back about my application?

We will notify you as to the status of your application by the end of September. Should you have questions about eligibility or the application process, please feel encouraged to reach out to Megan Ahiers ([email protected]).
