Council on Foundations
The Council on Foundations provides the opportunity, leadership, and tools needed by philanthropic organizations to expand, enhance, and sustain their ability to advance the common good.
Members of the Council on Foundations include community foundations, corporate grantmakers, private foundations (including family, independent, and operating foundations), public foundations, and non-U.S. grantmaking foundations.
The Muskingum County Community Foundation was recognized in 2005 for having organizational and financial practices that are in accordance with the National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations. National Standards were developed to distinguish community foundations from other philanthropic vehicles, build the capacity of community foundations to carry out their missions, and assist the field with self-regulation in a manner viewed positively by the Internal Revenue Service.
