USE OF NAME
Under federal law, Tinker Foundation grantees are prohibited from lobbying with Foundation funds. Grantees may, under applicable law, engage in certain lobbying activities that do not involve the expenditure of Foundation funds. No program or project that bears the Tinker Foundation name may engage in lobbying activities or lobbying communications. Please review the advocacy and public policy section, which explains the scope of prohibited lobbying activities.
We welcome any content that may help us communicate our grantees’ work to a larger audience. Tinker promotes grantees’ work on our website and on Twitter (@TinkerFdn). Written content that showcases your work, such as stories, press coverage, or publications, as well as photographs or videos, is helpful to our communication efforts. Please share these materials with Grants[at]tinker[dot]org.
LOGO AND VISUAL IDENTITY STANDARDS
Current Tinker Foundation grantees may use the Foundation’s logo in print or online materials. Logos may be used only if Tinker has provided direct support for a project and adheres to the guidelines in the “Use of Name” section. Send requests for use of our logo to Grants[at]tinker[dot]org. Please indicate the format and usage of the logo.
We do not need to review your press release, unless you would like us to do so. Please submit a draft of the press release or announcement to Caroline Kronley at ckronley[at]tinker[dot]org.
All materials that use the Tinker Foundation logo must be reviewed by the Foundation prior to publication or distribution. Please share all final materials with Grants[at]tinker[dot]org.
The Tinker Foundation has a Twitter account (@TinkerFdn) to follow our grantees. Send us your Twitter handle and tag us in your tweets!
