First Time Payment

After you have completed the assessment and uploaded all required documents, you may review and submit your assessment. You will then receive an on-screen submission confirmation. Payment of $1,250 must be made by check and mailed to the address below. 

Accreditation Renewal Payment

Information submitted into your assessment transfers over into accreditation renewal assessments, meaning only revisions, changes, or annual requirements are addressed in renewals. Timely accreditation renewal is $1,000.

When applying for renewal, you can login with the same email address and password used to complete your original assessment. You can also reset your password if needed within the assessment page. Renewal assessments and payments must be received no less than 90 days before your accreditation expires. If accreditation lapses, the reinstatement assessment fee is $1,250.

To track when your accreditation expires, visit the Community Foundation Locator and find your organization on the map.
