Home / Grants / Publicising Your Grant

If you are awarded a grant by us we would like others to know that you have been successful in applying for a grant by acknowledging this in your publicity materials. This helps us to raise the profile of our work and encourages other groups to apply for funding.

We really enjoy seeing any publicity materials you have produced or local news items that you may have featured in. As per your Conditions of Grant, please ensure that any publicity directly relating to the project our grant has funded acknowledges our support. The HIWCF logo should – as far as possible, please – be used in all publicity materials about the work for which you have received funding (including leaflets, flyers, annual reports and on your website).  In addition, for some HIWCF grants, we may also require you to use the donor logo on all your publicity materials. Please check with if you require further clarification on this.

We also ask that you please acknowledge your grant in press releases or when speaking to reporters or journalists. If you are issuing a media release you may use the following information about HIWCF:
