The Little Seal that Means a Lot

July 17, 2017

You may have noticed the small unassuming seal tucked away in the corner of all Community Foundation of Broward publications. Even though it's small, it represents a lot. The seal confirms our compliance with National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations®. Compliance means we adhere to the highest standards of operational excellence and integrity in community philanthropy.

This year, the Community Foundation again earned the right to display this credential after a rigorous reaccreditation process. Accreditation documents the legal, ethical and effective operational practices we have in place to maintain transparency and financial responsibility.

The milestone continues a tradition that began in 2000 when these National Standards were created and we became one of the nation's first community foundations to achieve compliance.  

Learn more about the National Standards for Community Foundations.
