NJCH gives priority to Sponsorship requests that:
- Support areas that are underserved in the NJ humanities ecosystem (i.e., geographic, demographic, institutional type, humanities disciplines)
- Support events/programs with a large number of attendees or viewership
- Support activities with low-cost or free attendance
- Provide equitable access to the humanities or educational/professional development opportunities for humanities-serving institutions
- Support activities that meet NJCH’s strategic priorities, but whose structure is not suited to NJCH’s current grantmaking programs or initiatives
- Support organizations not recently funded by NJCH grants
- Demonstrate a clear sense of the activity’s marketing and visibility potential, including logo placement, digital promotion, program inclusion
- Support rapid response programs that address recent events that have had a strong impact on New Jerseyans and that would benefit from a humanities perspective. In those cases, standard expectations about timing may be waived on a case-by-case basis.
