To describe the Gifford Foundation, we ask that you use the following language:

“The Gifford Foundation was established in 1954 as a private philanthropic foundation serving Syracuse and the surrounding Central New York region.  The Foundation supports individuals and organizations through grants and initiatives that build on community assets and promote positive change in the community.  For further information visit”

For Grantees Promoting a Grant

When promoting your grant, please refer to us as The Gifford Foundation. While your contract and check will be issued from the Rosamond Gifford Charitable Corporation, it is not the name we prefer used in public acknowledgments. In addition, please copy Lindsay McClung at on all releases.

If a grant includes an advertisement in your printed materials, please contact Lindsay McClung.

We also encourage you to promote the grant on social media, which we will do as well.
