As a recipient of a grant from Fairfield County’s Community Foundation, your nonprofit is required to follow the terms of the grant agreement, including reporting and publicity requirements.
Recipients of competitive grants must submit both an interim report and a final report during the lifecycle of the grant. Grants of $10,000 or less generally only require a final report. In general, grantees reports are due on January 15 and July 15.
When you have received a grant, you should notify the media and the public. This gives increased public exposure to your organization, your project and the issues you seek to address.
As part of the grant agreement, we request you acknowledge the Community Foundation in all media communications, public announcements, print and digital materials (e.g., newsletters and annual reports), and social media pertinent to the funded project. The credit line “Made possible [in part] by Fairfield County’s Community Foundation” may be appropriate for your publications.
