Unity Care NW believes everyone deserves the opportunity to live their healthiest life. Achieving this vision requires the collaboration of many groups within our community. Unity Care NW’s Health Care Champions Sponsorship Program, allows organizations to unite in support of whole-person health care access while enjoying year-round benefits. These sponsorships help create lasting community change by removing barriers to care, reducing the spread of illness, and easing the strain on our local hospital.

Supporting Programs Rather Than an Event

A key component of this program is that all funds directly support health care services for individuals and families, regardless of their insurance status. So rather than sponsoring a fundraising event, dollars go straight to providing crucial care. Sponsors receive year-round recognition and benefits while their donations help 1 in 10 Whatcom County residents.

Health happens inside and outside the exam room, so Unity Care NW has developed a variety of programs to support their patients on their journey to a happier, healthier life. Programs like Mobile Dental, which travels to all school districts in Whatcom County providing kids with dental exams, and The Hand-Up for Health program, which provides health-related items and services not covered by insurance. Funds from the Health Care Champion Sponsorship program support these efforts and more.

A Tailored Program

Participants can choose the benefits that work best for their organization, including options like social media, news articles, and shareable videos to name a few. The range of benefits expand as the level of support increases, ensuring that sponsors receive benefits and recognition that meet their needs.
