National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations

National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations® accreditation represents operational effectiveness to foster excellence in community philanthropy.

We do this in two ways:

1. We create standards for operationally and legally sound community foundations.
We lead community foundation staff and boards through the process of achieving operational excellence.

2. With confidence in their operations, community foundations can innovate and take risks necessary to solve complex social problems.
