Community Foundations National Standards Accreditation Affirms Our Commitment to Excellence

Siouxland Community Foundation is pleased to announce that we have recently renewed our accreditation with Community Foundations National Standards®. This accreditation, signified by the Seal shown here, indicates that Siouxland Community Foundation meets the highest standards for philanthropic excellence.

 “This is a significant accomplishment,” said Katie E. Roberts, Executive Director. “When people trust Siouxland Community Foundation with a charitable bequest, to establish a fund, or set up an annuity, they do it knowing that we have met rigorous standards for donor services, investment management, grantmaking and administration.”

We’ve always worked hard to do good, right here in Siouxland. And we’ll continue to work with you to achieve your charitable goals. Community Foundations National Standards ensures that we have policies in place for financial stability and longevity, affirming our continued commitment to our donors, grantees and community. In short: We are a proven place to give.

The process of earning Community Foundations National Standards accreditation is arduous. The program requires community foundations to document our policies for donor services, investments, grantmaking and administration. Our documentation was reviewed by a community foundation expert from a panel appointed by the Community Foundations National Standards Board, a supporting organization of the Council on Foundations in Washington, D.C.

“The Community Foundations National Standards accreditation says this house is in order” said Chrystal Mollet, 2024 Board President. “It is excellent validation of the work we do on behalf of our donors and our community.”

With your help, Siouxland Community Foundation has become a more effective partner for impacting the causes you care about. Thanks for working with us.

Siouxland Community Foundation was accredited with National Standards in June 2024.
