Recognition Policy

Recognition Policy

The Nanaimo Foundation encourages all grant recipients to build awareness of their projects through direct contact with the community and through local media. News releases, newsletters, presentations, brochures, leaflets and advertising are all simple but important ways your organization can build awareness and understanding of the impact of your work.

When promoting a project that the Nanaimo Foundation has funded, we ask that you acknowledge the Foundation’s support. The purpose of this acknowledgment is to raise awareness of the role of philanthropy in supporting community initiatives. By acknowledging the Foundation, we hope to encourage more philanthropy and thereby generate more support and funds for projects like yours in the years to come.
