Frequently Asked Questions:
Although the CAMC Foundation actively encourages community involvement through events and gifts, the foundation must pre-approve all events. This is an important safeguard to preserve the integrity of CAMC, the CAMC Foundation and our commitment to our donors. We are only able to approve and endorse fundraisers that meet the mission of CAMC and its affiliated entities. Therefore, CAMC must pre-approve of all uses of the CAMC name and logo.
You should be notified by foundation staff within one week of receipt of your application. We reserve the right to review and/or request additional information before approving a proposal.
Once your completed application has been approved, a member of the CAMC Foundation staff will provide you a logo to use for your promotional materials. Foundation staff must approve anything with the CAMC name or logo or the CAMC Foundation name or logo prior to any copying, printing and/or distribution. This also includes, but is not limited to, print media, electronic media and social media.
The CAMC Foundation is able to provide a liaison to give advice and guide you in the successful planning of your event. However, the foundation is not responsible for your event and cannot manage your fundraiser.
