About Old National Sponsorships

Q: What is the difference between a Corporate Sponsorship and a Foundation Grant?
Sponsorships are monetary contributions given in support of events or activities in exchange for advertising and/or publicity. Sponsorships provide a direct benefit to ONB.

Foundation Grants are provided to IRS designated 501 (c)(3) non-profit organizations. Grants are charitable donations used to fund programs and/or projects that are large in scope and impact. Grants do not provide a direct benefit to ONB.
