Special Event Sponsorship Program

Chandler is a place that celebrates in many unique ways, in large part because of the diversity of community groups that organize the events. Chandler has a Special Event Sponsorship Program that provides funding support for non-profit organizations.

The City of Chandler’s Special Events Sponsorship Program is designed to assist local non-profit organizations in presenting events that serve the public and promote Chandler. The mission of the program is to provide support and sponsorship to quality special events, which enhance the community in the following ways:

  • Providing cultural and educational enrichment
  • Celebrating our unique diversity, history and heritage
  • Enhancing pride and a sense of community
  • Promoting a positive image of the City of Chandler
  • Endorsing economic vitality

The program is designed to be a short-term assistance as events become established.

A panel of six citizens who currently serve on City-appointed boards and commissions will review the applications. The panel recommendations will then be submitted to the Chandler Cultural Foundation for approval. Awards will be announced at the end of September. 

Each year since 2002, the City Council has approved $30,000 in funding to be allocated to organizations that present quality special events in Chandler.

The application deadline is Thursday, August 23, 2018 at 5:00 p.m.
