Acknowledge Sprout Support – The Change Machine

As a supported project, you represent the most public face of the Change Machine. Through Sprout grant support, your success stories become our success stories. It’s important to us that your project is clearly identified as one of the youth initiatives supported as a part of the Change Machine.

Please use the logos and language found below to acknowledge Sprout’s support for your project. We ask that, whenever possible, you use the full-color logos. Reserve the monochrome image for use in black and white printed distribution materials, or in the case that the logos will not be visible with your design’s color scheme.

Additionally, we would appreciate receiving copies of any press releases, printed materials, web links, or other public information you develop for your project. Please submit your materials to news@nullsproutfund.org prior to distribution.
