  • CFPC Receives National Recognition

    We work to support the causes our community cares about, from housing and community, to expanding educational opportunities and feeding children – and so much more. National Standards says that we meet the most rigorous standards in philanthropy and is a promise to our community that we’ll continue to do this good work together, right here in Pulaski County.


    National Standards is not mandatory. We chose to go above and beyond by affirming our commitment to excellence and accountability. Our accreditation provides assurance that we have sound policies and practices in place. In short, it means we meet the highest standards for local giving. We have been accredited since October 2006.


    To receive accreditation with National Standards, CFPC submitted our policies and procedures to a rigorous review of 26 National Standards in six key areas of community foundation operations, including donor services, investment management, grantmaking and administration.
