I fail to find it from either. What I do find is that it is the WMF 
decides what they accept or do not accept when it comes to conditions 
coming with monetary contributions . Reading back it is easier for me to 
understand that it is the WMF who decided to post the small logo than 
that it was insisted upon by Virgin.

I think it is wholly appropriate to thank for such a substantial 
contribution in this way.
