Developed in the spirit of accountability, transparency and continuous self-improvement, the standards are philanthropy’s most rigorous benchmarks, and serve as a blueprint for internal and external operational excellence. Initiated by the Council on Foundations in 2000, the National Seal given to qualifying foundations indicates they have met the highest standards of legal, ethical and effective operational practices. 

“This recognition is like The Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval,” said Ann Tabor, president of the Grand Haven Area Community Foundation. “We have always been committed to maintaining the highest and most ethical standards. As one of the first community foundations to initially meet the very stringent National Standards, it just made sense for us to be in the first group of foundations to receive reconfirmation.”
