Acknowledging Your Grant

We ask that you acknowledge our support publicly. It’s important to let the people know about what our funding supports in the community and encourages others to apply for Community Trust South funding. 

It’s a good idea to start planning your acknowledgement as soon as you receive a grant. There are a range of ways you can publicly acknowledge our support and we've included some ideas below.

If you need help with how to promote your grant or have any questions about how to use our logo please ring us on 0800 500 185 or email our Marketing and Communications Advisor:
