What is an Underwriter? Also known as a sponsor, Underwriters are generous community members who financially support Hiawatha Homes Foundation through the Festival of Trees.

Who can be an Underwriter? If you are interested, the answer is you! Use the links below to view benefits and complete your agreement.

Do I get to have a tree? How do I pick it out? Yes! You’ll select your beautifully decorated tree at the Exclusive Underwriter Preview Party before the Opening Night Gala on November 22.

Can I design my tree? Yes! We ask that you follow all Tree Designer Guidelines and complete a Tree Designer Agreement.

What else do I need to know? Mark your calendar for several important dates:

• November 22 – Exclusive Underwriter Preview Party and Tree Selection
• November 22 – Opening Night Gala at J. Powers at the Hilton
• November 25 & 26 – Festival of Trees
• November 27 & 28 – Tree Delivery

We appreciate the time you’re taking to inquire. We invite you to become an Underwriter to help us continue the important work of providing opportunities for individuals with disabilities to live safe, enriching, productive and fulfilling lives.
