National Standards

The Community Foundation of Northern Colorado meets National Standards for operational quality, donor service and accountability in the community foundation sector. 

To receive confirmation of National Standards compliance, we submitted our organizational and financial policies and procedures to a rigorous peer review. To meet all 43 standards, we were required to document our policies in donor services, investment management, grantmaking and administration.
