Using the NCSD Name and Logo
The name “National Cancer Survivors Day®” (NCSD) and the NCSD Logo can only be used to organize, promote and conduct an official NCSD event that has been registered with the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation, Inc. (Foundation); no other use is authorized. The Foundation strongly recommends that your event be held on the first Sunday in June. If this date is not feasible, official NCSD events may take place at any time during the month of May or June.
The Logo design (survivor in circle) cannot be altered, but may appear in any color and may be placed on backgrounds of varying types and colors; however, the official NCSD colors are red (PMS 186), white, and blue (PMS 286), and their use is encouraged to show unity.
The name “National Cancer Survivors Day®” can be used in any font (typeface), but must be followed by the ® registration mark. It can be used as part of any logo (like a flower) created to theme a registered NCSD event.
While the purchasing of official NCSD merchandise from the NCSD Foundation is encouraged in order to promote a unified image, the NCSD Logo and/or the name “National Cancer Survivors Day®” may be used on any merchandise specifically produced by the coordinator of a registered NCSD event, but only for distribution at the event.
Any published material including, but not limited to, books, pamphlets, and educational materials may contain the NCSD Logo and/or the name “National Cancer Survivors Day®” if it is distributed exclusively in conjunction with a registered NCSD event, and if the material clearly indicates the name of the organization that has produced the material.
Your organization is solely responsible for complying with all local and state sales tax laws applicable to the distribution of NCSD merchandise and materials you produce, and that you obtain from the Foundation.
