    “Recognizing the Walmart Foundation For Its Good Works,” instructs organizations that “we are looking to the grantees that turn to the Walmart Foundation for funding to help us spread the word.”
    From a decades long career in social services and non-profits, I assure you that this is standard expectation. Whether the donor is individual, corporate, foundation, government - the goal is to get the maximum public exposure for their good works.  

    The most equitable way to do it is have a codified system. X amount for "platinum", Y for "gold", z for "silver" - you see it all the time in the program for the symphony or art museum.  In addition, for the big business/corporate/foundation givers there is a standard amount - X thousand gets your logo on the event/cause web site; y amount gets you on a banner or sign, z amount gives you "naming rights", etc.
