Sponsorship/Donation Request Policy

The City of Fort Pierce recognizes its role as an important partner to the community it serves. To help guide in that effort, this policy offers funding criteria, funding limitations and procedures to aid in responding to the many requests for charitable donations, event sponsorships, and in-kind requests. 

We endeavor to support the efforts of community organizations that relate to the mission, values, vision, and community benefit objectives of the City.  Careful consideration will be given to requests for financial and in-kind support that meet the requirements of the funding criteria.

Funding Criteria

To be considered, a request for sponsorship or donation must meet all of the following criteria:

  • The event must be open to the general public and held in the City of Fort Pierce.
  • The event must directly benefit the Fort Pierce community.
  • The City of Fort Pierce reserves the right to deny any request, at its sole discretion. Funding in prior years does not guarantee continued funding in any subsequent year.

Funding Limitations

It is the City's policy not to approve funding for the following:

  • Requests from organizations that are engaged in political activities
  • Requests from commercial or for-profit businesses
  • Requests from or requests that benefit single individuals or organizations
  • Requests and/or events that do not improve the welfare of the community

On an annual basis, the Fort Pierce City Commission establishes the funded amount for sponsorships and donations. Funding requests are limited to the amount available within the City’s budget at the time of the sponsorship or donation request.
