JDCF is proud to announce that our application for accreditation by the Land Trust Alliance Accreditation Commission was approved in February, making us just the second land trust in Illinois to achieve this mark of distinction in land conservation. The Commission is governed by an independent board of diverse land conservation and nonprofit management experts from around the country.

Commissioners volunteer their expertise to review applications and ensure that the Commission operates a credible accreditation program. Now that the foundation has passed the process with flying colors, we can display this seal, which provides an assurance of quality and performance that the public can trust.
