Sponsorship requests must clearly identify benefits offered and the value of these benefits must be reasonable and generally consistent with norms for comparable events or benefits. All approved sponsorship opportunities must be genuinely available to other potential sponsors. Sponsorships intended to fund organizations' general operating costs, routine business expenses, or capital costs (infrastructure), or political or lobbying activities are not eligible for funding by Arena.

Sponsorship requests must include:

  1. A brief, complete overview of the request, including description and purpose of the overall program or event, intended audience (e.g., patients and families, professional services staff, clinical professionals, etc.) and other information that demonstrates its value to the IBD community.
  2. Sponsorship Levels Available - These may be provided in a separate document and must give a detailed list of sponsorship options available and the tangible benefits of each level, such as inclusion in promotional material, signage at event, other recognition as appropriate.
  3. IRS Letter of Determination/501c3 (if applicable)
  4. W9 or W8 - A current copy of your organization's signed and dated (not more than 2 years old) W9 or W8 is required. Organizations not based in the United States may provide the appropriate government documents confirming non-profit status.

Sponsorship requests will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Requests must be submitted 60 days prior to funding decision deadline

In all cases, organizations will be notified by email. If a request is approved, the email will include an attached approval letter. Please print it, sign it and upload it back into the system. Funds will then be disbursed as quickly as possible.
