Acknowledging the Charity's support

Our work as a Charity depends on building support and awareness among King's staff and patients. A key requirement for all grant recipients is to acknowledge the Charity's funding in all communications activities, from email signatures to research reports.

King's College Hospital Charity's support must be acknowledged in all communications activities about the project (internal and external), and materials including written reports, articles and publications. King's College Hospital Charity and its fundraising and communications team can use this grant in any publicity, in written form or on their website.

Acknowledging our funding is important to help to raise awareness of our mission to support life-changing care at King’s. It also allows our supporters to see the impact their donations make across the King's community. We therefore request that any material made to promote your project includes an acknowledgment to King's College Hospital Charity.

Use our logo on any publications related to your project

The logo has been designed to be used on a white background. Use the white version of the logo on dark backgrounds. Use the black version of the logo on light backgrounds. Our logo is available to download from this link.
