Grant Recognition

Grants from The Winnipeg Foundation are made possible by generous donors from all walks of life. Donors want to know their contributions are having a meaningful impact; therefore we anticipate recognition of all grants received from the Foundation.

The Foundation has a range of grant recognition options.

If you have any questions about acknowledging your grant from the Foundation, please contact the Foundation's Communications team at 204.944.9474 or email.
Grant Recognition Options
To save a copy of the options for future reference, download Grant Recognition Options (PDF).

Include the Foundation’s logo on your website, newsletter, program, signage or any other communications tool available. Please do not download or copy our logo from the web. To request a digital file, please contact us.
Place the decal provided by the Foundation on a window or glass surface at your organization, preferably in a public area. To request a decal, please contact us.
Newsletter or program
Include an article about the grant in your print/electronic newsletter or program. If you require information or a Foundation quote for your article, please contact us.
Media release
Prepare a media release about the grant you’ve received. If you require information or a Foundation quote for your release from Foundation staff, please contact us.
The Foundation has banners and signage in a variety of sizes which organizations may borrow to display at special events. To borrow a banner or sign, please contact us.
Host a media event or public celebration of your project. Please mention the Foundation’s role in your project and invite Foundation staff to attend.
Invite a Foundation staff person to bring greetings at your media or public event.
Include the Foundation’s name and/or logo on any recognition signage you prepare.
If it is your usual process to prepare purchased advertisements recognizing contributions of sponsors and funders, please ensure the Foundation is included.
Additional Recognition Ideas
In addition to the recognition options you have selected, please consider the following opportunities:
If you have digital photos of your project and permission to publish the images of any individuals (or guardians in the case of minors) who appear in the images, please send them to the Foundation. From time to time the Foundation will feature agency stories in newspaper ads, print materials and on our website. Please include all relevant photo courtesy information.
Keep us in the loop
Is your project having big impact on individuals and families? Are there strong visual elements and great spokespeople? The Winnipeg Foundation regularly features grantees in its publications, TV spots and website. Let us know what’s happening in your organization and we’ll consider it for upcoming multi-media communications activities.
Ceremonial presentation
Let us know if you’d like a staff member from The Winnipeg Foundation to present the grant in person to your board, at an AGM or any other event. 
The Winnipeg Foundation frequently receives plaques, framed photos/posters or other mementos in recognition of our support to organizations. While we very much appreciate these gestures, we acknowledge that such items can be costly for organizations to produce. Public recognition as described above is sufficient.
