Check out chad.henning's Logo design contest…
Community & Non-Profit
The Buffalo County Goodfellows (http://kearneygoodfellows.org/) is a non profit organization based in Kearney, Nebraska (USA). This organization raises funds throughout the year from local businesses & individuals, and in turn we utilize these funds on activities that directly benefit children in the community/county. There are three major programs funded by Buffalo County Goodfellows: Our most visible program occurs at Christmas time. Board members work closely with our local Salvation Army to collect the names of children whose famiies would like to participate. We then shop, organize, wrap and deliver gifts to over 1000 children with the help of hundreds of community members. Secondly, the board purchases new winter coats and sets up a "coat drive". With the help of a local fraternity, we work with school social workers so that families can come and select a new coat for each of their children 2-18. Our third program, works with a locally owned grocery store to provide milk to families that are WIC ineligible. We provide the funds for that program which costs….on an annual basis. In addition to those three on-going programs, we accept grant applications from other organizations that have programs aligning with our mission, but are in need of funds. These grants are reviewed by the board and awards are made on a case by case basis. Ultimately, we are proud that everything we do goes towards the benefit of children in our community.
Logo types to explore
To begin with, thank you for reading this. I apologize for this being so lengthy (never have done this before). I am one of the board members of this organization. This non profit is pretty close to my heart, as it directly impacts children in need in our area who could use a little help. Unlike many other non profit organizations, no one who serves on (or has served on) the board of this organization gets paid a dime from any of the donated/raised funds. All of the funds go to the various programs that the Goodfellows support. The commitment to helping children in need in our community is what drives this organization. Which, quite frankly, leads to why we could use some help upgrading our logo to represent our organization. Don't get me wrong, what we do have has worked out great & has served its purpose. Its just that it is now time for us to get a quality logo to help promote the mission of this organization (and something to put on stationary to write thank you letters & such ). Per the paragraph above, please note that the organization is not paying for this contest with funds belonging to the Buffalo County Goodfellows. This logo design contest is being funded by board members out of their own pockets, not by the organization. If you'd like to get a better idea of some of the activities that go on, log into facebook and visit https://www.facebook.com/kearney.goodfellows . There you can see some of our recent "Christmas activities", which have a high participation level from the local community. Unfortunately we don't have any images/video of our winter coat giveaway or our milk program, but those are also very important events for us (but with lesser involvement from community volunteers). Many of the images we do have from our coat drive (where the kids try on the coats at the site) have pictures of the kids in them, so we chose not to display them on the FB page. Concerning the look of the logo, I think we'd prefer a "minimalistic " type of look. Simple, easy to read font with some sort of corresponding image that could identify with "helping kids in need" in one way or another. Colors - we're open to any color scheme you think might look the best! Also, there are many other organizations similar to ours, so in the event that another Goodfellows organization would want to use our logo, it'd be nice to have the main focus of the logo be on the word "Goodfellows" (which doesn't necessarily need to have capital letters), with "buffalo county" being more secondary... Thank you all for your time/consideration working on this contest! It really is for a great organization that serves a great cause. We're very excited to see what this community of designers can come up with! Happy 2016 everyone!
