For grantees promoting a grant

Promoting a grant

When promoting your grant, please refer to us as The Gifford Foundation. While your contract and check will be issued from the Rosamond Gifford Charitable Corporation, it is not the name we prefer used in public acknowledgments. In addition, please copy Megan Wagner-Flynn at on all releases.

If a grant includes an advertisement in your printed materials, please contact Lori Tape.

Please click here for the Gifford Foundation logo (vertical with tagline, square).

We encourage you to promote the grant on social media, which we will do as well. We are on Facebook as The Gifford Foundation and on Twitter as @GiffordCNY.Please use the following language in describing the Gifford Foundation:

The Gifford Foundation was established in 1954 as a private foundation serving Syracuse and the surrounding Central New York community.  The Foundation supports individuals and organizations through grants and initiatives that build on community assets and promote positive change in the community.  For further information visit the website at
