The board and staff of the Western Colorado Community Foundation are pleased to announce we have successfully completed a rigorous accreditation process and been accredited by the Council on Foundation‘s Community Foundations National Standards Board.

Notes the formal announcement letter: “The National Standards seal demonstrates your foundation’s commitment to accountability, excellence and service.  It affirms that your foundation‘s management aligns with nationally recognized effective practices.  Your accreditation also allows you to distinguish your foundation from other community foundations and philanthropic organizations that have not met these rigorous standards.”

The letter goes on to underscore the importance of national accreditation.

“The ultimate rewards of accreditation are the credibility its brings to community foundations and the confidence it gives donors, professional advisers and others who seek a qualified, trustworthy philanthropic partner.”
