Buck earns CAP® designation

The Board of Trustees of the Community Foundation of Grundy County is proud to announce that Executive Director Julianne Buck has earned designation as a Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy® through the American College of Financial Services effective September 1st.

The CAP® designation is designed to bring advisors and nonprofit gift planners together to serve clients who want to plan not only for their own financial security and that of their heirs, but also to make a difference in the world. CAP® is accepted as the mark of an advisor or gift planner committed to helping those who want to give wisely and well. CAP® designees are committed to professional and ethical best practices and must recertify this commitment annually.

“I am thankful that our Board of Trustees is supportive of continuing education for Foundation staff.  Along with National Standards through the Council on Foundations, professional development proves to the community that we continue to grow, evolve, and hone our skills to better serve our donors, professional advisors, nonprofits, and the community,” explained Buck.
