Foundation Meets National Standards

The Siouxland Community Foundation has received official confirmation from the national Council on Foundation that it is in compliance with National Standards for U.S. community foundations. The Community Foundation is therefore recognized as a qualified community foundation in the State of Iowa for the purposes defined in Endow Iowa and County Endowment Fund legislation that promote philanthropy. 

The National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations were designed to define the fundamental policies and procedures to be shared by community foundation regardless of size or geographic location and to provide an important framework for the organizational development of community foundations.

Community foundations that have declared their intent to comply with National Standards are given an opportunity to submit their standards-related “key elements” documentation for review and to receive independent confirmation of compliance.
