Partnerships Guidelines

Broward College supports a variety of nonprofit organizations with a special emphasis on those that work to achieve our goals and objectives and touch a diverse population, in particular, those that support college & career readiness, economic development, our Broward Up! communities and/or employee engagement.

Due to the number of requests Broward College receives, these guidelines are meant to assist organizations in understanding the College’s priorities. The proposed project, program and/or event must focus on one of the four Priorities listed below.

Broward College receives many more requests that it can support. When a request is denied, it does not imply that the applicant’s program is not vital. It may mean that the request does not fall within our guidelines or that all sponsorship funds for the year have been allocated.
