The Celia Lipton Farris and Victor W. Farris Foundation does not seek out publicity for its grant awards; however, the Foundation recognizes that publicity may be beneficial to its grantees with their fundraising efforts and, therefore, permits the use of the Foundation’s name and/or logo within its grantees’ communications regarding Foundation grants. The Foundation is providing these simple guidelines for use by Foundation grantees in press releases as well as other print and electronic communications to ensure consistency in use of the Foundation’s brand and image.
