KRMC Community Benefit Program
Kingman Regional Medical Center (KRMC) is committed to enhancing health and wellbeing in Kingman and surrounding communities in Mohave County. With our long-standing history of providing support for many community causes and events, we continue to receive a growing number of requests for sponsorships and donations.
The following guidelines enable us to manage our volume of requests and distribute our limited funds. Our Community Benefit Committee considers these elements when determining if and how we can support your community project, program, or event. Please thoroughly review these guidelines before submitting your request.
Types of support provided by KRMC
KRMC sponsors a host of community events and also provides donations to many worthy causes or activities in our community. We also provide in-kind services, which include giveaways for events, presentations by health professionals, first-aid support, general health screenings, and food or refreshments for your event from our Catering Department.
In general, we do not provide sponsorships or donations in excess of $2,500. However, if your organization directly serves a community need, we will accept requests for higher amounts. Approval will be decided on a case-by-case basis according to the timing of your application in relationship to our annual budgeting process, availability of funding, the described use of funds, and the requesting organization’s mission and capabilities.
