5 Critical Policies for Nonprofits

5 Critical Policies for Nonprofits

Thursday, April 25, 2019 - 1:30pm to 3:00pm EDT

Understanding the contents of policies - their opportunities and risks - can create more effectiveness in your organization.

The Form 990 tax information return requires nonprofits to report whether they have a conflict of interest policy, a whistleblower policy, and a document retention and destruction policy. Potential donors, the media, and regulators have greater confidence when an organization responds "yes" to the policy questions.

This webinar will do a deep dive into these three policies, plus a policy for setting compensation (to avoid excess benefits) and one for dealing with confidentiality of information. We will discuss the key components of each policy and study various sample policies to see how organizations can deal differently with different issues.

We will highlight policies promulgated and copyrighted by the Standards for Excellence Institute, the national program for ethics and accountability in the nonprofit sector. The Standards were originally developed by Maryland Nonprofits and are being promoted nationally with 10 replication partners, including the Pennsylvania Association of Nonprofit Organizations.

We'll cover the following:
Conflict of Interest
Document Retention
