It’s important to get the word out about grants your organization receives from NCCF grants programs. Not only does it let the community know about your organization’s great work, but it can also encourage giving and inform other nonprofits about NCCF’s grantmaking programs available.
Receiving a grant through NCCF’s community grantmaking program that our affiliates offer also lends credibility to your organization and its programs because it is a competitive process. Resources are limited and needs are great in every community we serve, so local grants committees employ a thorough evaluation process before making grants recommendations each year. This is also the case for many grants processes offered through NCCF fundholders.
While NCCF generally publicizes and announces many grant awards, your organization may want to go into more detail about your funded programs. Members of the news media are interested in hearing directly from the nonprofit because you are the most knowledgeable about your programs and results.
If you have any questions, email the regional director representing your area or contact NCCF's marketing and communications department in Raleigh at 919-828-4387.
Be sure to acknowledge in all publicity, exhibits, publications, social media and on your website the source of your grant. If you received a grant from one of our affiliate foundations, you are expected to cite the affiliate foundation name in publicizing and acknowledging your grant. Please include the name of the local affiliate foundation, also noting that funds are administered through the North Carolina Community Foundation. If you need help determining the exact name of the affiliate foundation that awarded you a grant, feel free to contact the NCCF regional director serving your area or check our affiliate listing. If you received your grant from a fundholder, be sure to cite the name of the fund.
