We looked up fonts on myfonts.com that may work for the word "enlightened" - all lower case - to mix with a clean sans serif "philanthropy" like many of you are using. The fonts for "enlightened" that looked interesting and legible are: Heiders, Sirenne Seventy Two MVB Roman, Calder LC sans serif, Mixa script semi bold, and Kalista serif light.

Please make sure enlightened is equal or less dominant than philanthropy. We want to add icons to the style we like because the text based, emblem designs are too boxy. We like clever designs that incorporate typographical solutions instead of just typing out a font. "enlightened" can be a script font if it is clean more upright and easy to read - not slanted, or overly calligraphic. We hope this is helpful.

No more boxes, please. Let's concentrate on clever and clean use of typography keeping "enlightened" smaller than "philanthropy".
