Bay Village Foundation letter campaign includes new logo

The Bay Village Foundation's new logo

You may have noticed that a familiar Bay organization has a fresh new look. The Bay Village Foundation’s new logo has been cropping up around town and in your mailbox. The first change was to update the yard signs, race shirts and medals for the annual BVF run on Oct. 20. Next up was to create a new letterhead and forms for the annual fundraising drive, a mailer sent to every Bay Village home.

The new look is part of an effort to refresh the 23-year-old nonprofit organization. Denny Wendell, a graphic designer and BVF trustee, donated his time and expertise to create a new branding package, which includes the logo, and all identity guidelines.

“The icon part of the logo incorporates five elements that define the community of Bay Village. The five elements are a town on the lake, a city of trees, a village of homes, a city of historic buildings and churches, and a 4-star-rated community with its schools, city and senior  services, and livability," said Wendell.

BVF’s annual letter campaign fundraiser is underway. Mindy Stroh, vice president and chair of the development committee asks all Bay residents to consider making a gift to support your community foundation.

President Rich Veres said, “We are looking forward to continuing to help make Bay Village an even better place to live, work and play in 2019. Your contributions allow the Foundation to make a real difference in our community.”
