For Your Review

Because the Community Foundation is committed to financial security, transparency and accountability, our policies are posted below for public review. Additional documents and publications are available for download on the Publications and Documents page of this site.


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. 

The National Standards Seal indicates official confirmation from the Council on Foundations that the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado has met the most rigorous standards in philanthropy. The National Standard Seal also confirms that we honor donors’ wishes—to support the arts, education, human services, the environment, and countless other important causes.
