Grantee Press Kit 


Congratulations on your grant approval!


Please know that your efforts are important and worthy of media attention. Publicity and media coverage will help to ensure the success of the funded project, your organization and the Community Foundation. To help you communicate the impact of your work, we have created a Grantee Press Kit. 

The Community Foundation is always interested in capturing the stories of our grantees. Compelling storytelling helps communicate to our donors the importance of giving to efforts like your own. We often feature stories of our grantees on our website. If you have a story that you would like to share, please contact Jennifer Sullivan, Director of Marketing and Communications.
