Event Sponsorships

Kaiser Permanente’s mission is to provide high quality, affordable health care services and to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve. Through partnerships with community organizations and governmental entities, Kaiser Permanente strives to benefit the community by addressing issues and concerns that affect overall community health. One of the ways that Kaiser Permanente does this is through sponsorships that support community events serving the San Bernardino County area only.
