Press & publicity

Acknowledging support

While our funding is not driven by naming opportunities, we would like our support to be acknowledged.  We ask that grants made by us or through partnership programmes be acknowledged in publicity, display and documentation related to the project e.g.

  • Donor boards
  • Wall panels
  • Marketing materials
  • Annual reports
  • Hoardings


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.


We ask that acknowledgement of our support on websites should include our logo and a link to our website address for the Wolfson Foundation.

Named areas

We occasionally request that an area be named after us if a significant grant has been made specifically for this purpose.  You should not use our name for named areas/aspects of a project without prior agreement.  Where a named area has been agreed, we request that we formally approve the draft signage.

Press releases and announcements

As a condition of the grant, we request that we formally agree in advance of release all press releases and announcements that mention us by name. 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 is an independent charity that supports and promotes excellence​ in the fields of science and health, heritage, humanities and the arts. Education and research underpins all that we do.

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.
