The fees paid by a community foundation help defray costs incurred during this process. The cost your community foundation’s first online accreditation application is $1,250 and the cost of annual re-accreditation is $1,000. The fee is due at the time you submit the application. Each fee covers the foundation for a one-year period. If accreditation lapses, the reinstatement application costs $1,250.
