The People's United Community Foundation (PUCF) encourages the publicizing of grant awards, along with programs and services supported by PUCF. We believe communication and media exposure are beneficial to your organization and PUCF, and hope our grantees will take advantage of the opportunity to promote the organization's activities and efforts, and the impact it has on individuals and communities.
