The Light Collective recognizes a donation to be an arrangement with industry; a company; organization or individual that provides financial support to The Light Collective in exchange for value‐neutral acknowledgement that neither endorses nor identifies a sponsor’s products or services.
The Light Collective requires a written agreement with the donor, which reflects the purpose (or unrestricted use), amount, and the agreed upon acknowledgment of the donation. The Light Collective Board reserves the right to turn down donations at its sole discretion.
Our staff independently determines how to acknowledge the donating organization in a value‐neutral manner so as to not endorse or promote a sponsor’s product or service.
Donations will be utilized in a manner consistent with the strategic plan and mission, and will not alter the processes used by the organization to execute its mission. As a potential stakeholder, donor organizations may be involved in the tactical execution of The Light Collective’s activities and projects; however, the scope of involvement will not be impacted by the presence or absence of a donation.
