Grant Publicity Guide

We appreciate your help in getting the word out about grants your organization receives from NCCF funds and/or affiliate foundations. Not only does it let the community know about your organization’s great work, but it can also encourage more giving.

While NCCF publicizes and announces many grant awards, your organization may want to go into more detail about your funded programs. The public is interested in hearing directly from the nonprofit because you are the most knowledgeable about your programs and results.

We ask that you cite the fund name and/or affiliate foundation in publicizing and acknowledging your grant and note that funds are administered by the North Carolina Community Foundation. Please acknowledge the source of your grant in all publicity, exhibits, news releases, website, email, social media, other digital communications and publications.

Publicity guidelines

Grant acknowledgment

Use one of the following language suggestions to acknowledge your grant from a fund and/or affiliate foundation:

Photos, videos and stories

We would also like the opportunity to share the good news about your grant! 

Pictures and videos are one of the most effective ways for people to see the work your organization does. Please provide NCCF with any pictures, videos or other content and stories from your program along with a signed release form from the people in the photos, either your organization’s releases for or you can download and use NCCF’s photo/video permission form. This is essential for minors.  

NCCF may promote your program through our publications, on our website, in videos or through our social media. Please send photos, videos and stories to the program officer for your region along with signed photo/video release forms.
