Can even organizers use the Community name for an event?
Yes, promotional materials that use the Community name must use the terms “…proceeds to benefit Community Health Network Foundation.” Community Health Network Foundation is the beneficiary rather than sponsor, of all fundraising projects and events. Therefore, Community’s name cannot be used as such: “Community Health Network Golf Tournament” or “Community Lemonade Stand”.
Can event organizers use Community’s logo on items for an event?
Generally, logo approval will not be granted for events. Any fundraising bearing Community Health Network Foundation or 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.

While we cannot guarantee a presence at all events, we will try our best to accommodate requests. Events that will receive greater consideration are those that raise $5,000 and above.

As an alternative, you make want to invite a grateful patient or their family from your community that could share their Community experience.
