Communications and Media Guidelines

We are proud to be associated with those we fund. And when BHHS Legacy Foundation is recognized for its support, it also serves the Foundation’s goals — drawing positive attention to our partners and their work while also building an understanding of BHHS Legacy Foundation and its funding priorities. To help our grantee partners communicate about grant awards, grant-supported activities, and any impact or outcomes from their work, we’ve developed the following guidelines.

+ Acknowledging the Foundation

While your organization should be the focus of your communications, there may be times where you would like to add a description of your funders. The following language should be used when referring to the Foundation:

  • Materials should list the Foundation’s full legal name: BHHS Legacy Foundation
  • Our name can be abbreviated after the first use to “the Foundation.” The “F” in Foundation should be capitalized in this abbreviated form.

In any grant announcements or materials funded by the grant, please use one of the following credits:

  • The [organization/project/event] is supported by a grant from BHHS Legacy Foundation.
  • This [project/event] is made possible thanks in part to support from BHHS Legacy Foundation.

To describe the Foundation further, please use the following paragraph:

  • BHHS Legacy Foundation supports organizations that enhance health and quality of life in the Greater Phoenix area and the Tri-State region of northern Arizona. It does this by funding grants to nonprofits with health-related programs, nurturing collaborative partnerships, and raising funds through Legacy Connection to support community organizations. To date, BHHS Legacy Foundation has invested more than $110 million in nonprofits to support programs in our communities.

+ Press Releases

If you plan to issue a press release that will mention the Foundation, please email Mary Cotterman, Grants Manager, at to ensure that information about the Foundation is accurate.

+ Using the BHHS Legacy Foundation Logo

Grantees may use the BHHS Legacy Foundation logo in print or online materials related to the grant-funded project. These are available for download in multiple formats below.

+ Featuring Grantees in BHHS Legacy Foundation Communications

We frequently feature grantees in our newsletters and social media channels. We are always interested in amplifying our partners’ good work, and we love to see our grants in action. Please let us know when you have events for your BHHS Legacy-supported project by emailing Mary Cotterman, Grants Manager at

+ Social Media

We use social media to promote our grantee partners’ work and share information. We invite you to follow us:

We also ask that you let us know the best social media profiles for your organization and key staff for us to connect with and follow, so that we may stay abreast of important social media notifications and help promote your relevant activities. You can do so by connecting with us (we will follow back) or by emailing

+ Printable Sign

Spread the word! Take a photo with the “Funded by #BHHSLegacyGrant” printable sign and share on social media with the hashtag #BHHSLegacyGrant — don’t forget to tag us on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
