Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsorship Opportunities

Supporting community groups, organizations, and academic institutions in the PF community

Each year, the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF) receives many requests for sponsorship support from various community groups, organizations, or academic institutions. As a nonprofit organization, we have a limited budget for sponsorships. We will do our best to match our limited discretionary funds with your request based on the needs of the pulmonary fibrosis community.

If your request is $750 or under and you are seeking a sponsorship for an activity related to your local support group, please submit your application through the Leanne Storch Support Group Fund. View Guidelines and Application Details

If you are affiliated with an accredited PFF Care Center Network (CCN) site, you are not eligible to apply for this program. Please email if you have questions about funding for your CCN event or activity. Learn more about CCN sites.

For questions or additional information, please email

sponsorship considerations

Currently, the PFF is considering sponsorship activities that are between $1,000 and $5,000. If your request is outside of this range, please contact the PFF at to request an exception.

Considerations will be given to the following (but not limited to):

  • Conferences
  • Symposiums
  • Educational events for patients
  • Educational events for medical professionals
  • Speaker fees or honoraria
  • Travel expenses for speakers

Other activities may be considered if the request supports the priorities of the PFF as outlined in our mission.

Proposal submissions

  • All requests for sponsorships must be submitted through proposalCENTRAL. No email submissions will be accepted.
  • All applications must be submitted 60 days prior to the activity start date.

Annual Cycle

  • The annual cycle for applications will close at midnight Eastern Time on October 31. This is for all sponsorship activities occurring in this calendar year.
  • The annual cycle for all sponsorship activities that occur in the next calendar year will open on November 1.


  • All applications will be reviewed by the PFF bi-monthly.
  • Applicants will be notified through the application system proposalCENTRAL. An approval letter will also be sent via email to the applicant directly.
  • Funds will only be released after the PFF has received an original signed copy of the Agreement.
  • All funding requests will be submitted to the sponsorship committee for consideration. All decisions made by the committee are final. 

This process is in place to ensure that all applications are evaluated equally and fulfill the PFF mission, vision, values, and strategic plan.
