Community Foundations of Canada
Community Foundations of Canada (CFC) is the national leadership organization for Canada’s 193 local community foundations.
As Canada’s first community foundation, we are a proud member of Community Foundation’s of Canada.
The Standards Program is a Canada-wide set of shared standards for charities and non-profits designed to strengthen practices in five fundamental areas: board governance; financial accountability and transparency; fundraising; staff management; and volunteer involvement. Policies and procedures in the five areas of compliance are evaluated by a peer group of volunteers from the sector.
The Winnipeg Foundation is proud to be accredited under Imagine Canada’s national Standards Program.
