What are the Standards of Excellence?
January 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Want to learn more about the Standards for Excellence® in the Nonprofit Sector?
“In today’s world, nonprofits cannot simply be ‘do-gooders.’ Nonprofits must act ethically and be held accountable for achieving results. The Standards for Excellence® offer nonprofit board and staff leaders the tools they need to strengthen the quality and integrity of management in their organizations.” Walter Sondheim (1908-2007), Greater Baltimore Committee
The Standards for Excellence Institute® encourages excellence and integrity in nonprofit management. Organizations voluntarily participate, and their internal practices undergo a rigorous “ethics checkup.”
The Standards for Excellence®: An Ethics and Accountability Code for the Nonprofit Sector (the code) is the centerpiece of the Standards for Excellence® program. The standards evaluate principles of honesty, integrity, fairness, respect, trust, responsibility, and accountability in nonprofit program operations, governance, human resources, financial management and fundraising.
The standards set a high benchmark. They go beyond the minimum legal requirements by outlining how well–managed and responsibly governed nonprofits should operate.
Come to this informational meeting to learn how Anthony Williams, a licensed consultant of these standards can help you learn more about the standards.
