About IGFA

Our organization is made up of both professionals and everyday people from our community that serve our growing population of vulnerable persons through Guardianship and Conservatorship.

Our goal is to achieve the highest standards of care and professional ethics for guardians and conservators who are given the responsibility of protecting and serving those who are unable to manage their own affairs. We serve elderly individuals who may have experienced a serious health event or the progressing effects of disease, children who are minors and unable to care for their themselves, those who are dealing with the aftermath of a traumatic brain injury, and people of all ages with developmental disabilities.

Our statewide membership includes guardians, conservators, social workers, care givers, attorneys, cpa’s, care facility staff, and public employees serving in various agencies that support our wards.

Mission Statement

Idaho Guardian and Fiduciary Association’s mission is to ensure that all protected individuals are cared for in a sensitive, ethical, cost effective and least restrictive manner.

Our association follows the code of ethics and standards of practice established by the National Guardianship Association (NGA) and support their licensure recommendations.

We hope you will join with us to further our mission!

Purpose

The Idaho Guardian and Fiduciary Association, through state-wide representation, is a resource to assist and support families, volunteers, and professionals who serve incapacitated and protected persons as: petitioning attorneys, guardians ad litem, court visitors, guardians of the person, and conservators of the estate.

We provide information and education on the legal process, code of ethics and standards of practice in an effort to assure incapacitated and protected persons in the state of Idaho are cared for in a sensitive, ethical, cost effective, and the least intrusive manner.

We will work to develop responsive, skilled, and cost effective resources so that all vulnerable wards have the available services regardless of their financial status.
