Civitan Branding Guide

Civitan has a long-standing history of being Champions of Service. We were founded out of a desire to support our local communities on a level that meant more than just personal networking. We’ve since evolved into an international community of doers; individuals who are bound together with a common passion to follow The Golden Rule.

Civitan has a proud history of being trailblazers. We were the first volunteer service organization to open membership to women. We were the first volunteer service organization to allow people of color to join clubs. We are the only volunteer service organization that has a mission that supports individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We are an organization of strong and bold individuals who collectively work together to uplift others.

It is important that our organization is represented in the same light whether we are in the Great Lakes of Michigan, the rivers in Alabama, or the mountains of Korea. In all four corners of the world, wherever there is a Civitan club, we must work together to ensure Civitan is presented under a cohesive brand.

Letter of Permission

Often times when using a vendor to print a trademarked logo on a t-shirt or even drawn onto a cake, you will be asked to produce a letter of permission to use the logo. If you are asked for a letter of permission, please send an email to pr@civitan.org with complete details.
