Grant Recognition Guidelines

Pasadena Community Foundation publicizes its grants through media relations, and feature stories in our publications and on our website. We encourage nonprofit agencies to share photos of grant projects with us so that we can showcase your good work.

PCF can help publicize your grant and your activities by:

  • Highlighting interesting grant stories through the PCF website, newsletter and annual report.
  • Sending a representative to grant-related events, at your request (not required).
  • Providing acknowledgement language and Foundation logos for your use as needed (see below).

Grants from the Pasadena Community Foundation are made possible by generous donors to PCF’s unrestricted and field of interest funds since the organization was founded in 1953. Public recognition of the grant, and thereby of all donors to the Foundation, is very important to encourage future contributions to this permanent community resource.

Grant Recipient Responsibilities

We appreciate acknowledgement of your grant from Pasadena Community Foundation in whatever ways are within your organization’s communications capabilities. We encourage you to send us press releases or copies of publications or media coverage that mention your grant.

We have provided a “proud recipient” logo for use in your newsletter or other communications vehicles. We encourage you to use our logo, with the written acknowledgement, where suitable.

Acknowledging Your Grant

Please use the following language to acknowledge your PCF grant:

This project was funded (or funded in part) by a grant from the unrestricted funds of the Pasadena Community Foundation, made possible by generous donors since 1953. 

Please always refer to the Foundation as the “Pasadena Community Foundation.” You may use “PCF” on second reference.
