MID Community Sponsorship Program

Merced Irrigation District is proud to be an active partner in the community we serve. The District remains committed to the betterment and well-being of the residents, businesses and government entities we serve.

Each year MID sponsors organizational events that provide an overall benefit to MID’s goals of outreach and public education on a host of issues, ranging from energy savings to water and canal safety, among others.

Nonprofit organizations within the community are invited to submit their requests in writing to MID using this printable application or through our direct online application. Please also provide any event flyers or sponsorship-request letters. Once received, MID will objectively review and determine if the requested sponsorship is available and would further the District’s educational goals.

It is recommended that you review the MID Community Sponsorship Interest Areas and Public Benefits to MID Outreach and Education below as you develop your proposal and complete the printable application or online application. Applications should be submitted at least 30 days prior to the event date or before the sponsorship is requested. Applications must be completed with all information. Incomplete applications may result in either denial or delay of a sponsorship from MID. Sponsorships are not granted to individuals, political candidates or committees, nor religious organizations. Should you have any questions about the application, please contact MID at (209) 354-2856.
