If an activity that we produce is supported by a community health foundation that is not an ACCME-defined commercial interest, are we allowed to use its logo to acknowledge their support?

Yes. The organization you describe is not an ACCME-defined commercial interest. Standard 6.4 of the ACCME Standards for Commercial SupportSM: Standards to Ensure Independence in CME Activities says that, “Disclosure must never include the use of a corporate logo, trade name or a product-group message of an ACCME-defined commercial interest.

For more information, see Accreditation Council for CME Prohibits Commercial Interest Logos in Disclosure of Commercial Support.
