Telling people about your grant can help you:

  • Raise the profile of your organisation and project
  • Let others know what you are doing in your community
  • Raise the profile of Cumbria Community Foundation as a grant maker and tell people where and how our funding is being spent

There are all sorts of ways of publicising your project, e.g. leaflets, annual reviews, signs, websites as well as media releases.  Whatever form your publicity takes always tell people what fund the grant came from e.g.

‘Our project/group has been funded/supported by the NAME OF FUND which is managed by Cumbria Community Foundation.’

In some publications and on your website you may want to use the our logo. If you would like a particular funder’s logo, please email

If you are issuing a media release you may use the following information about Cumbria Community Foundation.
