Publicity Guidelines – Taos Community Foundation Grants

Taos Community Foundation is able to award grants because of the generosity of our fund holders and donors. We are proud to support your work, and we encourage you to share news of your grants, and recognize both Taos Community Foundation and the fund(s) which helped to make the grant possible.

The following guidelines are intended to assist you in sharing your grant publicly. We ask that you follow these basic guidelines when using our name or logo.

Include news of your grant in all publications you produce for distribution.

This includes press releases, newsletters, brochures, annual reports, board minutes, etc. All publicity mentioning support from the Foundation should refer to Taos Community Foundation, and the name of the specific fund(s) (rather than the fund holder’s name) as identified in your grant award letter.

For example: This project was funded (or partially funded) by a grant from the xxxxxx Fund at Taos Community Foundation.

If you have questions about the best way to acknowledge a grant, or about the total monetary award from TCF for publication, please don’t hesitate to call us.

Taos Community Foundation Logo:

We ask that you use our logo and name in all external communication that involves Taos Community Foundation, including but not limited to: advertisements, flyers, brochures, presentations, newsletters, print marketing, and social media materials. Please do not change the color, or otherwise alter or remove elements of the logo. When our logo is placed on advertising material with very limited layout space, please make sure the type is clearly legible.

We request that if you include our logo or name on your website, you link from your page to the homepage of our website site.
