Every organization, project, and program that has received a grant from The Law Foundation of Ontario is required to acknowledge the grant. The following information will help you understand why and how to properly acknowledge your grant from the Foundation.
What you need to know
The acknowledgement of your grant is necessary and important. The acknowledgement requirement is part of the funding agreement and reporting requirements that we have with all grantees. All grantees outline their proposed acknowledgement activities in their original grant application and they report on these activities in their final report. Grantees must sign their funding agreement before they publicly acknowledge the grant and announce the funded activity.
The Foundation has a responsibility to be transparent and accountable in its grantmaking. The acknowledgement of your grant is one of the most broad and visible ways to communicate our funding investments. And, when you properly acknowledge your grant, it helps raise people’s awareness and understanding of the Foundation and our mission. More support for our mission means more support to continue to fund worthy organizations such as yours.
