Dissemination Requirements for Funded Programs
Rural organizations should discuss dissemination and reporting requirements with the philanthropy.
Any public-facing products should include an acknowledgement of the funder as a supporter of this
project, if that is agreeable to the funder. Similarly, the philanthropic organization may be
interested in publicizing the work of its grantees to illustrate the benefits that communities are
receiving as a result of their funds. Programs should be prepared to share materials like promotional
videos or stories with their project officer.
Rural programs that receive funding from philanthropic organizations may be required to share program
results with the philanthropy both during the grant and after the funding ends. Some philanthropies
have advisory boards, and rural programs may be required to provide periodic updates.
