The El Paso Community Foundation is committed to transparency and good governance, and is the only regional foundation to be accredited by the Council on Foundations. Since 2006, the El Paso Community Foundation has been recognized as an exemplary organization by the Council on Foundations’s National Standards. It is essentially a trusted “Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval” for the El Paso Community Foundation.
The El Paso Community Foundation is made up of several affiliated organizations as well, which are listed in our audited financials. It is one reason the Foundation does not post its IRS 990 — the information report to the Internal Revenue Service — because each of those affiliated organizations cannot be included in that report, which can make it misleading at best.
