Third-party event policies for donors
Use of Community Health Network names and logo/promotional approval
Any fundraising project/event created, organized, and operated by a third-party for the benefit of Community Health Network Foundation and using Community Health Network images or logos in any promotions must be approved in advance by Community Health Network Foundation. This requirement applies to broadcast and web promotions and all printed materials referencing Community Health Network and the Community Health Network Foundation. Generally, logo approval will not be granted for events.
Community Health Network Foundation as beneficiary, not sponsor
Community Health Network Foundation and Community Health Network are the beneficiaries, rather than sponsors, of all third party events. Community Health Network will take no part in or responsibility for the organization, administration, or conduct of the third-party event. Promotional materials that use the Community name should incorporate the following statement: “proceeds to benefit Community Health Network Foundation”.
Please remember that many local organizations already support Community Health Network and may not wish to make additional contributions through your third party events. Prospective sponsors must be approved in advance by Community Health Network Foundation. Events should complement the mission and image of Community Health Network and Community Health Network Foundation. Companies that conflict with Community’s mission or values may not be sponsors.
Fundraising projects and events must be financially self-sustaining without contribution from or financial risk to Community Health Network Foundation. All third party event expenses are the responsibility of the third party event organizer and must be paid before net proceeds are given to the Foundation. Community Health Network Foundation will only accept the net proceeds of a third party event. Refunds or reimbursements of third party event expenses will not be available after the vent income is given to Community Health Network Foundation. The Foundation is not financially or otherwise liable for the promotion, staging, operation or administration of third party events. Events should submit one check with net proceeds, not individual checks.
Third party event organizers should not provide tax advice to third party event contributors. Organizers should refer individuals to tax or legal counsel for information.
