Please provide an active link to www.CommunityPartners.org along with Community Partners' logo. Several versions of the logo are attached to this article.
Your relationship with Community Partners must also be acknowledged on the donation page of your website, or alongside any text soliciting donations. Example:
- [Your org name] is a project of Community Partners, a nonprofit charity exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code.

Recognizing Community Partners as your fiscal sponsor offers full transparency to donors and funders; it can also can bring an added level of confidence to potential funders, clients and other stakeholders who recognize Community Partners as a well-established and highly-regarded organization.
