The logo should capture the following concepts:
Ending the Cycle of poverty
Multiple non-profit organizations working together (collaboration effort)
The work is done in the County of Marin in California
Marin is about nature, the ocean and the accessibility to San Francisco through the Golden Gate Bridge.
The other side of the coin is the poverty and lack of opportunities that you cannot see from the 101 freeway that runs through the County.
I would like to see opportunities and challenges. The strength of people pulling their resources to make a difference. etc.
Color is good because we have blue ocean and skies and green hills all around.
I do not want any pictures of real people shaking hands or handing things out. I'm looking for a good logo that will unite these 12 great non-profit organizations together as one, towards the common goal of ending poverty.
Here is a link to the organization where we are getting our funding from: http://www.marincf.org/
Here is a link to two of the 12 organizations as well: http://adoptafamily.org/ and http://www.canalalliance.org/
