In seeking to provide services of the highest quality, GMHC relies heavily upon contributions from the private sector. Recognizing that support from the corporate sector plays a critical role in this process, GMHC has set forth the following guidelines to establish a positive, ongoing dialogue with funders and prospects from the business community.
In accepting any support from a corporation GMHC will, when applicable, list the corporation on its roster of funders, or credit the corporation on publications or materials which are made possible by the grant.
Any grant to GMHC cannot compromise the agency's ability to act as an independent advocate for people affected by HIV/AIDS. While we value the partnership and advice of our funders, GMHC's staff and Board of Directors have ultimate control over all GMHC activities.
In accepting corporate support, GMHC does not endorse or support the activities, products, or positions of any business; will not be a part of any internal marketing of products or services; and will not make any agency mailing lists available for external use (an exception to this would be products licensed by GMHC and jointly marketed, such as tee shirts at an event).
To help ensure accuracy in public information, GMHC will refer to the donor before using the organization's name and/or logo on materials such as press releases. In turn, GMHC should also be provided with the opportunity to review drafts of similar materials or promotional pieces produced by the corporate supporter.
GMHC reserves the right to refuse a corporate contribution based upon the company's positions or standing on HIV/AIDS or related issues.
