The Communities of Coastal Georgia Foundation meets National Standards for operational quality, donor service and accountability in the community foundation sector.
The National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations Program was established in 2000 in cooperation with the Council on Foundations. National Standards guide community foundations in establishing legal, ethical and effective operational practices that serve as blueprints for internal development and benchmarks for external assessment. The 43 National Standards require the Communities of Coastal Georgia Foundationto document its policies in donor services, investment management, grantmaking and administration. To receive confirmation of National Standards compliance, The Communities of Coastal Georgia Foundation submitted its organizational and financial policies and procedures to a rigorous peer review.
