Toledo Community Foundation launches new brand identity
Toledo Community Foundation has rebranded as the Greater Toledo Community Foundation, introduced a new brand identity and website this month. The new name and brand better reflect the foundation’s mission, while honoring the past, and includes an update to the classic blue logo mark as well as a new tagline: “Strength in Giving. Hope in Action.”
“Over the past several decades, we have built a strong reputation for bringing together financial resources of individuals, families and businesses to support effective nonprofits in the community,” said Keith Burwell, president of Greater Toledo Community Foundation. “Evolving our name and brand is the appropriate strategic move for us, and the research showed that. While we wanted to accurately reflect our work in the new name and tagline, we also wanted to position the Foundation for new opportunities and growth.”
In existence since 1973, the foundation has more than 875 funds with assets of approximately $304 million. To see their new website, visit toledocf.org.
