Funding acknowledgement is exactly what is sounds like, acknowledging the funders that are making your project possible. It’s important to the program funders that funding is appropriately acknowledged, and credit given on any public communications.

These guidelines have been developed to assist you, as a funding recipient, to appropriately acknowledge the source of funding in all communication materials and products related to your project. Additionally, these guidelines will assist you if you choose to initiate a public announcement about your project.

Many projects involve several individuals, organizations, third party contractors and other partners. Please share this information with all those involved in the delivery of your project. As a recipient of funding, you are expected to include appropriate acknowledgements on all project-related communication materials and products. These requirements are part of your contractual obligation.

Funding acknowledgements typically include logos (graphic identifiers), a credit line (written statement), and a disclaimer statement. You must submit proofs of all communications materials to be cost-shared in advance of being made public to IAF’s Client Portal. Communications Approval must be received before your expense can be produced, used, or reimbursed.
