Promoting Your Grant Award

Congratulations on receiving a grant from one of our funding programmes. This page provide guidance on using our logo when promoting the activities we have funded.

Promoting Your Grant Award

It is a requirement of the grant you have received to include our logo in any publications or PR that promote the funded activities. This may include your website, social media, press releases, posters, flyers and other marketing materials.

Some funding programmes require the use of an additional logo, such as programmes supported by a local company e.g. Wessex Water Foundation. The Grants Manager will advise you by email if this is the case.

Our logo must not be smaller than 3,5cm wide and 1,5 cm high.

Where to use logos:

  • Websites
  • Any marketing materials – leaflets, posters etc
  • Social media posts relating to the project or grant award
  • Press releases
  • Advertising
  • Events
  • Capital items and equipment  (where possible)

Social Media

If you use social media to promote your project, you can like and tag our Facebook page, follow us on Twitter @DorsetComFnd or use our #DCFgrant hash tag in tweets which mention your funding, so we can help celebrate your success.


However you choose to acknowledge your grant, it must be for the duration of the grant period (usually 12 months). If you print our logo on capital items or equipment this should remain for the lifetime of the items.

If you have any questions regarding logos or promoting your project please contact our Marketing and Communications Manager Gary Lawrence
