Goodyear Accepting Applications for

Event/Festival Sponsorships

(GOODYEAR, AZ) The City of Goodyear is now accepting applications for its Special Events Sponsorship Program.  The program provides direct monetary grants and indirect in-kind services primarily to agencies/organizers that hold festival-type events.  If an event is not physically in the City, it should be well attended by residents of Goodyear to qualify for funding. The City takes many event factors – both tangible and intangible - into consideration when judging the value of its sponsorship. Some of the key criteria are:

Ø      Is the event in the City of Goodyear?

Ø      Is it attended by a large number of Goodyear residents if not located within the City?

Ø      Will the residents receive substantial benefit from the sponsorship?

Ø      Will the City receive a good return on its investment/good value and publicity for the money?

Ø      How much does the sponsorship cost per attendee?

Ø      Is this an established event and a growing one?


Applications can be downloaded from Goodyear’s website at   Click on Programs and Services and go down the alphabetical listing to Special Event Sponsorship Funding Application – not the Special Event Permit Application.  


Applications will be accepted through March 9, 2007 at 5:00 p.m. and the deadline will be strictly followed. Read the enclosed application carefully to ensure completion of all information.  Please understand that late applications will not be accepted.  Mail or deliver the application to the Communications Division, City Hall, 190 N. Litchfield Rd., Goodyear, AZ 85338.


Sponsorship funding amounts (both cash and in-kind) approved by the City Council will be part of the FY 07-08 budget adopted by the City Council.  Award recipients will be notified by letter in July 2007 of the amount approved by Council and should receive funding by approximately September 1, 2007. 


For more information, please call Paula Ilardo at 623/882-7820 or e-mail her at
