Foundations for Excellence:
Quality Standards for Florida’s Local Education Foundations
Drawing on 30 years of best practices, your peer local education foundations have developed performance standards for members as a voluntary self-assessment and peer review process.
Specific practices in six key areas were identified – all with a goal of providing a strong foundation that is sustainable beyond leadership and program changes. Great care was taken to make the standards achievable by small, volunteer-driven organizations yet provide room for growth for more established, larger members. In going through the review process, CFEF members will submit evidence for meeting each standard while having ready access to national resources and quality sample documents.

How You Can Use Your Quality Standard Rating
You can share your Foundations for Excellence rating with anyone you wish—your board, district, business partners, the wider community—but the CFEF never will. This process is meant to support your foundation in growing to be a highly-effective organization on common standards of excellence. Sharing the fact that you have participated in this exercise and are striving to continually improve your processes and practices is a badge of honor we hope you can be proud of and use as a benchmark of success for your organization.
