Communications

RWJF developed the following writing guidelines to maintain standard RWJF teminology, style and language usage.

 

RWJF Writing Style Guide

The RWJF Writing Style Guide covers spelling, formatting, punctuation, grammar and writing guidelines for a consistent style of communication.

 

Quick Reference Guide to Recommended Style for RWJF Publications

The Quick Reference Guide is a convenient resource updated with some new and revised key entries. For complete style recommendations for writing, spelling, formatting and punctuation, see the RWJF Writing Style Guide listed above.

 

Call for Proposals Writing Guidelines

The CFP Writing Guide was developed to assist RWJF and national program office (NPO) staff as they draft their call for proposals (CFP) products. While each program is substantively different, every CFP should use standard RWJF terminology, style and language usage as outlined in this guide.

 

Request for Proposals Writing Guidelines

The RFP Writing Guide was developed to assist staff as they draft their request for proposals (RFPs) document. RFPs are used for closed or “invitation only” competitions. While each program is substantively different, every RFP should use standard RWJF terminology, style and language as outlined on the following pages.

 

Record Retention

Records to be retained by your organization

Maintain all records including those listed below for the life of the program.  Follow your organization's record retention guidance for these records when your program closes.

 

Records to be submitted to RWJF

All materials sent to the Foundation should be clearly marked with the grant ID number (if submitted outside of Grantee Hub).

 
Ongoing Basis
End of Program

 

At the end of your program, the only records needed by the Foundation are those displayed in the "End of Program" list above. In other words, there should not be a backlog of records at the end of your program to submit to the Foundation.
