CHA has created this workbook-style resource for sponsors to assist in
starting or continuing conversations around sponsorship and its role in the
shared ministry of health care. Its contents are the result of more than a
year-and-a-half of work by a CHA special committee, and hundreds of ministry
members and others who critiqued and assessed its viability as a useful tool for
Six core elements for sponsorship form the basis of the document. These
elements, along with suggested reflection questions and evidences of these
elements being lived out, are all included in the guide. In addition, a
suggested process for reflection on the roles and responsibilities of
sponsorship, governance and management (or as adapted for use by organizations
with other structures) is included.
As this guide is not intended to serve as an
"all-for-one" tool, a CD, containing documents of key components of the guide,
is included so that certain content can be adapted to most accurately reflect
the mission and structures of an organization.
