Talking about your funding

You are welcome to publicly acknowledge funding from us. In most cases we are happy to help with promotional activities and material.

Here are some resources to help you communicate about your funding from us. Please feel free to contact paul.collins@therobertsontrust.org.uk if you have any questions or need further guidance.

Using our logo

Please feel free to use our logo on any publications you produce about work we are directly supporting. We are also happy for our logo to be included when referring more generally to supporters of your organisation, for example, within Annual Reports, presentations or brochures.

You can download our full logo pack here. This has a range of JPG, PNG and EPS files, as well as guidance on the best files to use for printed and digital materials. 

Promoting on social media

We would be very happy to help you with promotion of your funding on social media. Tagging @RobertsonTrust on Twitter will alert us to your acknowledgement and, where possible, we will retweet or favourite this Tweet. 

Press releases

We're usually happy to provide a quote from one of our team to support any press releases you produce around your funding. Please send a copy of your draft press release to paul.collins@therobertsontrust.org.uk, ensuring you have left enough time for the quote to be provided ahead of the targeted media's deadlines. We will do our best to provide a quote to you within two working days.

If you wish to include a paragraph about The Robertson Trust in Notes to Editor, please use the following text:

The Robertson Trust is currently the largest independent grant-making trust in Scotland. Inspired by the example of its founders, the Robertson Sisters, it has a vision for a fair and compassionate Scotland where everyone is valued and able to flourish. For more information, please visit www.therobertsontrust.org.uk

Communications toolkit

Beyond acknowledging funding, the ability to communicate your messages at the right time to the right people is becoming an increasingly important skill for third sector organisations.

Doing this effectively can produce a number of benefits, including:

  • Raising awareness of the good work you are doing
  • Creating discussion around the issues that matter most to you
  • Keeping your stakeholders abreast of your progress and latest developments

With this in mind, we've produced a communications toolkit with tips and practical advice for raising the profile of your work, and best practice advice for writing media releases, inviting journalist to events, arranging photography and video and generating a social media buzz around your work.
