Nonprofit Distinctions

Charities Review Council Meets Standards LOGO

The Minneapolis College Foundation is proud to say we hold three nonprofit distinctions. It’s what we like to call the “Triple Crown of Nonprofits.” We are a Meets Standards® organization with the Charities Review Council. The voluntary review process examined four key areas: Public Disclosure, Governance, Financial Activity, and Fundraising.

As a result, the Foundation aligned its practices, policies and procedures to widely accepted standards of accountability created by nonprofit leaders, donors, funders, and subject-matter experts.

GuideStar Platinum Seal

To prove we are committed to the highest level of transparency, the Foundation earned the Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStar. This was achieved by sharing our strategies for growth, success metrics and IRS financial statements in a public profile on the GuideStar website.

The Platinum Seal shows just how much we value earning and maintaining the trust of individual donors, community partners, family foundations and corporate sponsors.
