Principles for Good Governance and Ethical Practice: Reference Edition

The Principles for Good Governance and Ethical Practice outlines 33 principles of sound practice for charitable organizations and foundations related to legal compliance and public disclosure, effective governance, financial oversight, and responsible fundraising. The Principles should be considered by every charitable organization as a guide for strengthening its effectiveness and accountability.

This reference edition of the 2015 Principles includes legal background on each principle and a glossary of terms.
