Six Critical Policies for Nonprofits

Concerned about the governance of your organization?

We take a renewed look at six critical policies that help your organization function safely and effectively. Nonprofits have traditionally paid attention to conflict of interest policies, whistleblower policies, and document retention and destruction policies.  Organizations pay attention, in large part, because the IRS asks about these policies on the Form 990 tax return. But these policies are critical in ensuring that the organization protects itself from wrong-doing and criticism that would undermine its ability to promote its mission.

Price: $44.50

That's 50% off its regular price of $89.
