Grantees

This section of the Wiregrass Foundation (WF) website includes newsletters, revised grantmaking policies or requirements, and other issues that may be of interest to our partnering nonprofit grantees.  If there is information you would like to see added to this site, please contact us – all requests will be reviewed.

 


Recent Changes to Grant Application  Process:

WF recently added a short cut for grantees to access their account page.  Now, all you need to do is click on the Grantee Log-in button at the bottom of the website home page.   You will be directed to your account log in page!

Did you know that once inside your account, you may access all previous grant applications submitted, or started?  With the online application process, you can begin your application, save the information, and return later to complete.  Just remember – always save your application before submitting!  Your application will not be sent to WF for review unless this important step has been made!  If you have any questions on accessing your account or your applications, please contact us.  We will be glad to assist!

 


Revised Publicity Guidelines:

(Revised July 2016)

It is not the practice of WF to initiate publicity regarding grants awarded.  Nor do we require grantees to do so.  WF would like the focus of any project to be on the good work being accomplished, not on the funders.

However, if your organization is planning to publicize a project to which WF has been a major contributor,  please include Wiregrass Foundation. Examples of these projects are:

For a news release about a project for which WF is the primary or major funder:

A statement within the release that this project was made possible, in part, through a grant by Wiregrass Foundation.

For a news release about a project for which WF is one of several contributors:

Include Wiregrass Foundation if you plan to list your funders.

For a website dedicated to a project for which WF is one of several contributors:

Include Wiregrass Foundation if you plan to list your funders.

For a printed program and/or announcements from the stage for a celebration (i.e., ribbon cutting, grand opening, participant graduation, etc.) of a program in which WF is a contributor:

List Wiregrass Foundation on the printed programs, or include in the list of names read, if you plan to acknowledge funders.

Grantees may, at their discretion, include the amount of the Foundation grant, but should not feel compelled to do so.  All WF grant information is public domain and is included on this website.
