    GEOList Summary: Promotional Kit for Grantees

    Good afternoon! We would like to encourage grantees to include us in their promotional materials for programs/projects/initiatives that we have funded. I’d like it to be a “kit” with various marketing verbiage and tools (like our logo) that we can send via a link to our grantees after a grant cycle, either hosted on a webpage or other “all-in-one” vehicle to make it very easy for them to pull the language or logo they need, with minimal support from our team. Do any other foundations have a promotional kit like this and ask grantees to include their foundation’s name/logo in their marketing and PR? If so, I’d appreciate knowing how you word this to your grantees, what tools you provide, and how you share those tools with grantees. Thanks!

    GEO Colleagues, As we continue to provide grant dollars for immediate and critical needs in response to COVID-19 we are beginning to look at “what’s next” for our traditional, competitive grantmaking program. While I recognize every community will have different needs and circumstances, have many of you been able to develop a comprehensive grant strategy to provide long-term relief to nonprofits impacted by COVID-19? If so, would you be willing to share your framework, application, current thoughts, etc.? Wishing you and yours good health --
