Affiliate Communications Toolkit

We have tools available to help you inform the community about your affiliate. To request materials contact your Community Leadership Officer

Print Materials

About the Affiliate example

Marketing Materials

To support you in telling your affiliate’s story, we have created an About Us two-pager that can be printed or shared electronically. Affiliates with a smaller family of funds have the funds listed in the About Us piece.

Power of Endowment

For affiliates with a larger family of funds, those are on the back of the Power of Endowment piece, which serves as a companion for the About Us.

Event Materials

We have templates that can be used for events planned in partnership with your CLO. These can be printed by NCCF staff on medium-weight cardstock and mailed directly to a central location or to your guests, with enough lead time. If your board would prefer professionally designed and printed materials, NCCF staff can facilitate your request, with enough lead time.*

  • Save the dates
  • Invitations
  • Programs
  • Sticker nametags

Other print materials by request

Reach out to your CLO well in advance to request these materials. NCCF staff will ensure they are up-to-date and meet our print quality standards.

*NOTE: Signs, magnetic nametags and other professionally printed materials must be paid for via your affiliate’s unrestricted fund. NCCF staff can assist in placing an order with one of our vendors, or can assist in providing files so that your board can work with a local vendor.

Website

Your affiliate has its own section on this website, maintained regularly by NCCF staff. This is the hub for online donations, information, news and more! Find yours.

We also have some tools that make it easier to share your affiliate’s webpage.

  • Each affiliate has its own QR code like the one shown. When scanned by a smartphone camera, QR codes bring a person to a website. This makes them great for use on printed materials and signage. 
  • Your affiliate also has a “short url” or short link that can be used to get someone directly to your affiliate’s page, such as nccommunityfoundation.org/Alleghany. Find your affiliate’s short link.

Social Media

Press Releases & Media Coverage

NCCF Marketing & Communications staff work with your community leadership officer and program officer to publish a press release about your community grants awarded each year.

Additionally, we have templates and examples available for a number of news topics. 

If any of these topics are relevant to your affiliate, work with your CLO to write the first draft of the press release. They will then connect you with Marketing & Communications staff for next steps, including publishing to the NCCF website and sharing with local media in your area. 

Help us keep our local media contact lists up to date by providing updates on outlets and reporters in your area to your CLO.

Blog Posts

Have something that you want to share with your community? We can add a blog post to your affiliate webpage in the “News” section, such as these examples in Ashe, Jackson and Watauga. Contact your CLO to get started.
