Communications & Media Guidelines

We recognize the power of strategic communications to advance an organization’s mission. We encourage our partners to share news of grant awards, grant-supported activities, and any milestones or impact from your work via your organization’s website, blog, social media, and outreach to traditional media. Such communications should focus on your organization, priorities, and/or on those who benefit from your work. Roundhouse Foundation should not be the focus. We are proud to be associated with those we fund; and, when Roundhouse is recognized for its support, we believe it also serves the Foundation’s goals and mission – drawing positive attention to our partners and their work, while also helping to build understanding of Roundhouse and our priorities.

To assist you in communicating about your grant, we provide the following guidelines:

Acknowledging the Foundation

For the duration of your grant, we ask that you acknowledge Roundhouse Foundation as you do any other supporters. For example, please note the Foundation’s support on any web pages, announcements, or printed materials about the work supported by your grant.

Below is the approved language grantees can use to acknowledge the Foundation’s support. A longer option, as well as language to acknowledge Pine Meadow Ranch Center for Arts & Agriculture, can be found in our Media Kit.

The Roundhouse Foundation is a private family foundation based in Sisters, Oregon that supports creative solutions to the unique challenges associated with rural culture and the landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. For more information call 541-904-0700 or visit their website at www.RoundhouseFoundation.org.

You are welcome to use any of the above, as applicable, to your grant, and do not need to seek approval from Roundhouse Foundation before publishing. If, however, you wish to include custom acknowledgment language or a quote from Roundhouse leadership, we request that you give us an opportunity to review a draft of the information to be released. In all cases, please forward us a final copy of all external communications materials such as news releases, newsletters, email announcements, website copy, fact sheets or any other materials that recognize your grant from the Roundhouse Foundation to media@roundhosuefoundation.org.

Sharing Photos with Roundhouse

To help promote the project for which you received a grant, we encourage you to share high-resolution (at least 1,500 pixels across or 1MB in file size) JPGs with us. We look for dynamic, people-centric images that showcase the work and its impacts. Prior to sending us your photos, please ensure you have written consent to publish and share them from individuals appearing in the photos, and from the photographer. Please also include IDs/photo captions.
