On Friday, October 10, eight nonprofit organizations in Alabama were presented with the Standards for Excellence Institute’s Seal of Excellence as they celebrated their completion of the rigorous nonprofit accreditation program. Through a partnership with Standards for Excellence Replication Partner Alabama Association of Nonprofits, the Community Foundation of Northeast Alabama, and United Way of East Central Alabama, a three-day teaching session for executive directors and board members was held for these organizations. Additionally, a Standards for Excellence Coordinator was hired to assist the organizations navigate through the accreditation process.
Program Director Amy Coates Madsen attended the celebration at the Anniston Country Club that included a press conference and formal presentation of the Seals. Reporters from local media, including the Anniston Star and WEAC TV24, were in attendance.
Please join us in congratulating these exemplary nonprofits and their leaders in this inaugural Standards for Excellence class.
