If you’ve ever been tasked with ensuring your organization is run effectively and ethically, then you’ve likely come across Independent Sector’s Principles for Good Governance and Ethical Practice.
But in case you aren’t familiar, the Principles outline sound practice for charitable organizations and foundations related to legal compliance and public disclosure, effective governance, financial oversight, and responsible fundraising. Marking its tenth year, we are happy to announce that our Resource Center, which includes hundreds of relevant resources to help your organization abide by the 33 Principles, is now on our website.
In addition to the full guide and reference edition, you may now also download resources on topics such as:
- State-by-state laws governing charitable organizations
- Tips for developing a Code of Ethics
- Resources for abiding by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act
