PLEASE READ

Because of Friends of Acadia’s IRS classification, we are obligated to observe certain restrictions in ad content. Sponsorship ads may include:

  • The sponsor’s name, logo, or products
  • Slogans/tag lines that are an established part of the sponsor’s identity (“G.E…We bring good things to life.”) or that do not contain qualitative or comparative descriptions of the sponsor’s products, services, facilities or company
  • A list of the sponsor’s locations, telephone numbers, or Internet address
  • Value-neutral descriptions, including displays or visual depictions, of the sponsor’s products or services

Not allowed are qualitative or comparative language (“gorgeous,” “the best,” “#1”), price information, or indications of savings or value (“10% off”).

This is a relatively new restriction for all Friends of Acadia publications, and we do our best to apply the rules correctly and fairly. If you have questions about the wording of your ad, please contact Sharon Broom at sharon@friendsofacadia.org. Thank you for understanding!
