The Community Foundation of Sarasota County has been nationally recognized for its commitment to financial stewardship, accountability and transparency by two leaders in the philanthropic industry, in addition to being named a top regional employer.

 The foundation has been awarded re-accreditation with the National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations for an additional three years. The Community Foundation has earned this recognition since 2006, one year after the accreditation’s inception.

The foundation has also earned an “exceptional” four-star rating on Charity Navigator, the highest attainable from the independent nonprofit evaluator, which verifies that the foundation exceeds industry standards and outperforms other charitable organizations in its area of work, specifically across two performance metrics: financial health and accountability and transparency.
