Press & Publicity

Acknowledging support

While our funding is not driven by naming opportunities, we would like our support to be acknowledged. We hope this section will provide useful guidance in how to go about this.

We ask that grants made by us or through partnership programmes be acknowledged in publicity, display and documentation related to the project. This includes (where relevant) wall panels, marketing materials, annual reports and websites. You do not need to use our logo in all cases, but where other funders are being acknowledged by inclusion of a logo, then we request that ours is used.

The following guidance applies to funding received directly from us. Where your award is via a partnership programme, please consult the relevant partner organisation for guidelines on acknowledging support.

Logos

Please ensure you have prior consent from the Wolfson Foundation before using one of our logos. The logo may only be used in conjunction with our brand guidelines. Download our logos here.

Named areas

We occasionally request that an area be named after us if a significant grant has been made specifically for this.  You should not use our name for named areas/aspects of a project without prior agreement.

Websites

We ask that acknowledgement of our support on websites should include our logo and a link to our homepage: www.wolfson.org.uk

Announcements

A condition of a grant is that, when relating to the award, we should formally agree all press announcements. We can where appropriate provide quotes for press releases.

The standard text about us for inclusion in the 'notes to editors' on press releases is:

  • The Wolfson Foundation (www.wolfson.org.uk) is an independent charity that supports and promotes excellence in the fields of science, health, education and the arts and humanities. 
  • Since it was established in 1955, over £900 million (£1.9 billion in real terms) has been awarded to more than 11,000 projects throughout the UK, all on the basis of expert review.
