Bellwether League currently is funded by four Founding Sponsors at the Platinum level – Owens & Minor, Premier and Vizient, and two Platinum Sponsors – HealthTrust and VIE Healthcare – and a host of additional sponsors.
Bellwether League seeks sustaining sponsorships to maintain the organization's financial stability, its daily operations and ongoing activities and events and to promote its mission and vision of recognizing and honoring supply chain excellence.
Bellwether League offers four sustaining sponsorship levels.
- Platinum Sponsors make an initial contribution of $12,000, and annual contributions of a minimum $5,000 per year thereafter.
- Gold Sponsors make an initial contribution of $8,000, and then annual contributions of a minimum $4,000 per year thereafter.
- Silver Sponsors make an initial contribution of $5,000 and then annual contributions of a minimum $3,000 per year thereafter.

Bellwether League also offers a Corporate & Professional sponsorship level for any companies, organizations and individuals that would like to make a donation.
Because Bellwether League is a non-stock, not-for-profit Illinois corporation, tax exempt under IRS Code Section 501(c)(6), donations and sponsorships are not deductible as a charitable contribution for income tax purposes, but may be deductible as a business expense.
