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

“This is a significant accomplishment,” said Josh Engel, President, Board of Trustees. “When people trust the Clinton County Foundation with a charitable gift, they do it knowing that we have met rigorous standards for donor services, investment management, grantmaking and administration.”

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 Alison Belfrage, Executive Director. “It is excellent validation of the work we do on behalf of our donors and our community.” 

With your help, the Clinton County Foundation has become a more effective partner for impacting the causes you care about. Thank you for working with us.
