Grant Recognition Guidelines

Help us get the word out!

Your grant is made possible by generous donors who have contributed to the Greater Cincinnati Foundation for this purpose since 1963. Public recognition of your GCF grant is very important to encourage future contributions to this permanent community resource.

4 ways your organization benefits from publicizing your GCF grant:

  1. Your organization receives positive attention for the important work you are doing.
  2. GCF and its donors are recognized, raising awareness of giving through GCF.
  3. Identifying GCF as a source of support lends credibility to your efforts with other funders.
  4. Other nonprofits learn about GCF’s grant programs and are encouraged to contact us.

GCF publicizes grants through the media, our website and social media, and printed materials. We request that you also acknowledge your GCF grant in your public communications. Often, the media is more interested in hearing directly from a nonprofit organization and the people it benefits. If we coordinate our efforts, we can be more successful in getting the word out.

Thank you for all your work in building a more prosperous Greater Cincinnati!
