Governance Ethics

 

It is vital to consider the importance of creating a code of ethics when establishing a nonprofit organization. America’s nonprofit sector is committed to public service. The success of nonprofit organizations relies on public confidence and support. Nonprofits are supported by individuals, corporations and foundations through charitable contributions and volunteer efforts. They are also supported by government through contracts and grants, by consumers through purchases and fees, and by the general public through state and federal tax laws. For the “Principles for Good Governance and Ethical Practice: A Guide for Charities and Foundations” recommended by the National Council of Nonprofits see:
