Sponsorship Policy

ALTSCHA/Chesapeake Crossroads Heritage Area has a limited amount of funding available each fiscal year that may be used towards the sponsorship of events or collaborative initiatives planned by one or more stakeholders. We look for events/programs that foster creative collaborations among multiple heritage-related organizations to build partnerships for the benefit of our local community. Only non-profit organizations are eligible to apply, for an event or program taking place within the geographic boundaries of our heritage area.

NOTE: Sponsorships approved by Chesapeake Crossroads are usually in the $250-$500 range. For an event with a larger budget, please consider our Mini-grant opportunity.

Application Procedure: If your event or program meets our criteria (above), you are encouraged to submit a detailed request. All sponsorship requests must be submitted via e-mail to using our application form (below).

Please state clearly if there are different levels of sponsorship available for your event/program. We ask that you refrain from requesting sponsorship until the key details are known (i.e., date(s), location, partners, key participants, speakers/performers if any, and budget).

Review Process: Our sponsorship review committee will review applications on an ongoing basis throughout the year. It may take up to two weeks for a request to be reviewed; you will be notified via e-mail. Thank you!
