Council on Foundations Recognizes Union County Foundation
for Compliance with National Accountability Standards


July, 2017
The Union County Foundation is pleased to announce that we have recently received re-accreditation with National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations®. The Union County Foundation was first accredited with National Standards in 2006. This accreditation, signified by the Seal shown here, indicates that The Union County Foundation meets the highest standards for philanthropic excellence.

“This is a significant accomplishment,” said Chad Hoffman, board chairman. “When people trust The Union County Foundation with a charitable bequest, to establish a fund, or set up an annuity, they do it knowing that we have met rigorous standards for donor services, investment management, grantmaking and administration.”

We’ve always worked hard to do good, right here in Union County. And we’ll continue to work with you to achieve your charitable goals. National Standards ensures that we have policies in place for financial stability and longevity, affirming our continued commitment to our donors, grantees and community. In short: We are a proven place to give.

The process of earning 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 Arlington, V.A.

“The National Standards accreditation says this house is in order,” said Dave Vollrath, executive director. “It is excellent validation of the work we do on behalf of our donors and our community.”

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