Host a Special Event

Metropolitan Ministries is a nonprofit, nondenominational, faith based organization that provides answers for poor and homeless families. Founded in 1972 by 13 downtown Tampa churches, this community supported ministry has earned the trust and support of charitable individuals, volunteers, businesses, churches, synagogues, civic organizations, schools and collaborative partners. The Ministries does not depend on government funding and is not a United Way agency.

When considering partnering with an outside organization on a special event – whether lending the Ministries’ name and/or its resources, or as the beneficiary of any funds raised from that event – the event itself and the sponsoring organization must meet certain criteria. In addition, you must receive written approval from the Metropolitan Ministries Special Events Committee before the Ministries’ name, affiliation and/or logo can be used on any promotional materials. See our Trademark and Logo Usage Policy. Step One in the process is filling out the application form below and submitting your event for consideration. Step Two is written notification via US Mail or E-mail from the Ministries agreeing to participate in your event. Step Three is an initial meeting for all parties involved. And, Step Four, following the event, is a post-event recap form, which you will be required to complete for us.

The Ministries ask you submit your event for approval 3 months prior to the scheduled date by filling out the Special Events Form in its entirety. The Ministries will approve events on a quarterly basis (every 3 months).  If you have any questions, please contact Tejal Patel by E-mail at or by phone at 813.209.1209.
