Charitable Contributions

It is our belief that the most important contribution we can make is to help improve the health of the Quad City region.

Within the scope of our charitable contributions program, qualifying non-profit and health-related organizations may apply for and receive financial support from us for specific programs and events that may have a positive impact on health issues facing Quad Citians.

Generally, an organization should only submit one sponsorship request per calendar year. Organizations seeking sponsorship for a specific event should contact Genesis Community Relations staff no less than six months prior to the event date.
