Downloadable logos and sample copy for Arts, Education and Health grantees to use in communications about their Rainin Foundation grants.

The Kenneth Rainin Foundation encourages organizations to announce grants in the Arts, Education and Health from us in written materials or online publications and on social media. While your organization should be the focus of your communications, there may be instances where you would like to add a description of your funders. The following language should be used when the Kenneth Rainin Foundation is included:

  • Materials should list the Foundation’s full legal name: Kenneth Rainin Foundation.
  • To describe the Foundation further, please use the following paragraph:
    • “The Kenneth Rainin Foundation is a private family foundation dedicated to enhancing quality of life by championing and sustaining the arts, promoting early childhood literacy and supporting research to cure chronic disease. Collaboration and innovation are at the heart of all its programs. Its vision is guided by the belief that change is possible through inquiry, creativity and compassion.”
