Media releases

Below is the standard text about Kent Community Foundation which can be included in any media releases about projects we have supported:

Kent Community Foundation helps individuals, families, businesses, trusts and foundations establish and administer their own charitable funds to support the causes that mean the most to them in Kent and Medway.

Since 2001, Kent Community Foundation has distributed over £30 million to local grassroots charities and voluntary organisations where a modest sum of money can make a significant impact.

For further information please call Hannah Lawrence, Communications Executive on 01303 815 157 or email hannah@kentcf.org.uk

Acknowledging funders and KCF

In talking about the funding received please thank the fund and make it clear it is administered by Kent Community Foundation. This will help raise the awareness of local philanthropy. For example:

Thank you for the generous support of The Brook Trust Fund for Kent,  administered by Kent Community Foundation. 

Photography and video

We love receiving your photos and videos which not only help us show the impact to our fund-holders but to promote the work we do and raise awareness of grassroots charities like yourselves.

Top tips for photography:

  1. Make sure you get consent from people if you take photos of them. Anyone in the photo must understand how the images will be used. If you are sending the photos to KCF then the ‘model’ must be made aware that their photo may be shared and used by Kent Community Foundation. You can let people know by:
    - An announcement
    - Verbally speaking to individuals
    - Displaying notices
    - A written consent form
    Read here for advice from NSPCC on consent for minors.
  2. Add a human element - Photos and videos with people in work best
  3. Camera phones are fine to use, just remember:
    - Hold them still to ensure they are in focus and not blurry
    - Ensure you have enough light
    - Get close to your ‘subject’ rather than using zoom which will decrease the quality
    - Don’t use effects on your phone
  4. Provide them to KCF as a high-resolution photo – above 1MB
  5. Supply photos as high quality .JPGs, .PNGs or .TIFFs.
  6. Send via email, through wetransfer, Dropbox or on a USB which is posted in.

It's great having a foundation that empowers organisations and charities in our community to make real positive differences and changes!
