Corporate partner guidelines

The Academy’s Corporate Partner Circle Program offers engaging benefits in addition to the recognition of supported programs and services. It recognizes the company’s total annual commitment to AAD programs/ services, including sponsorships and grants, starting at $25,000.

  • Diamond: $500,000 - $749,999 and above

  • Sapphire: $250,000 - $499,999

  • Ruby: $100,000 - $249,999

  • Emerald: $25,000 - $99,999

The Academy created a special Corporate Partner Circle logo, which companies may use after receiving approval from the AAD.

Guidelines and policies

The Academy restricts the usage of its logo and restricts recognizing support via pharmaceutical brand names. The Academy wishes to avoid a perceived endorsement. Additional guidelines and policies with relation to supporting the Academy may apply and additional information on them may be found in the Corporate Relations Governance Policies and Guidelines Handbook (PDF).
