Community Event Sponsorship

Thank you for your interest in Moorhead Public Service's (MPS') Community Event Marketing Program. MPS' commitment goes beyond supplying safe, reliable power and water to the residents of Moorhead. As a public utility, MPS exists to serve its customers and its community. This program has been established as part of MPS' commitment to community service. Through thoughtful community event marketing, it is MPS' desire to enhance the quality of life for our employees and all who live in the community we serve.

Evaluation of Requests

MPS’ Community Event Marketing Program was established by the Moorhead Public Service Commission in 2008 to support programs and events that provide marketing exposure for MPS, advance a public purpose, and address community needs.


MPS will consider sponsorship requests from community organizations that are soliciting support from the general public and/or businesses within the community. Requests should include pre‑established sponsorship level(s). Events must provide recognition to MPS in the form of naming rights, display ads, signage, plaques, and/or other appropriate means of public recognition.


Emphasis will be given to events that primarily affect the customers of MPS and to events that address community needs. Organizations should demonstrate a broad base of community support, as well as support from other businesses and foundations. MPS generally will not support requests for which MPS will be the only sponsor. MPS generally will not support events involving individuals; political campaigns/parties; churches for religious causes; activities, organizations, or causes that do not advance a public purpose; and/or any organizations or causes that are restricted by the State of Minnesota.


Please note that MPS expects the number of sponsorship requests to exceed the amount that can be funded. If it is necessary to decline support for an event, MPS is not reflecting on the value of the group or its services, but rather on the need to be selective due to limited resources.
