Principles for Not-for-Profit Boards
The Principles for Good Governance and Ethical Practice: A Guide for Charities and Foundations is designed to help organizations evaluate and improve their operations. Its 33 principles focus on four areas: legal compliance and public disclosure, effective governance, strong financial oversight, and responsible fundraising. Accompanying this set of principles is the Principles Workbook: Steering Your Board Toward Good Governance and Ethical Practice to help boards assess areas where their organizations are doing well and where there may be opportunities for improvement. Complimentary downloads of both resources are available.
