Sponsorship, Advertising, & Charitable Giving Requests

Sponsorship & Charitable Giving

As part of our mission, each year we invest in the work of numerous charitable organizations throughout the community.  We look for innovative programs that address issues critical to those in need and award financial assistance to those we believe can make a real difference.  Our company and dynamic staff take an active role in building better communities where we work.  We evaluate organizations and companies who allow our employees to continue to support health and wellness programs through employee involvement opportunities.  Please remember that Athletico receives numerous requests for charitable support throughout the year and not all organizations may be able to receive support.

Our main focus for contributions includes organizations whose mission is to support health and wellness with an emphasis on making everyday activities of daily living better.

The following guidelines are used in evaluating sponsorship and charitable giving proposals:

  • Requests will be considered if sent at least six (6) weeks in advance of the desired commitment deadline.
