Grant Acknowledgement Toolkit

A guide for Spring Cleanup Grant funding recipients

First of all, congratulations on receiving a Trans Canada Trail (TCT) grant!

As funding recipients, all groups are required to publicly acknowledge TCT’s contributions and how the Spring Cleanup Grant Program is contributing to TCT’s development efforts to enhance The Great Trail of Canada. By publicly acknowledging the Spring Cleanup Grant Program, Trans Canada Trail and The Great Trail, we hope that awareness will be raised, and more support and funds will be generated to maintain The Great Trail.

The following are the requirements established for this program:

  • Reach out to your local community to promote your activity (if it’s open to the public)
  • Install recognition signs for TCT funding (if TCT provides the signage)
  • Make a public announcement on your website and social media platforms
  • Promote your activity in advance and post pictures during the activity

Below, you’ll find useful items such as our logos, media relations tips and social media messaging that should be helpful in both acknowledging TCT and promoting your efforts.
