The Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta has once again met the highest national philanthropic standards for operational quality, integrity and accountability. A designation given by the Council on Foundations, the National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations are philanthropy’s most rigorous benchmarks and serve as a blueprint for internal and external operational excellence.
In order to receive confirmation, the National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations Program requires community foundations to complete a highly intensive process of documenting policies for donor services, investment management, grantmaking and administration.
“The National Standards reconfirmation demonstrates The Community Foundation’s commitment to transparency, sound fiscal management and responsibility,” says Christie Brown, vice president of Finance & Operations. “The National Standards seal signifies we are delivering on our promise to be a trusted steward of long-term assets for the region. When partnering with us to support their philanthropy, donors can be assured we are smart, solid investment.”
