At Last – A Standards Program for Charities and Non Profits

Posted by 9 May, 2012

Imagine Canada has just launched its new Standards Program.   This is a voluntary accreditation program for charities & nonprofits that demonstrate excellence in: board governance, financial accountability & transparency, ethical fund raising, staff management and volunteer involvement.   Applications are assessed by a peer review panel.   Organizations that receive accreditation will sign a licence of agreement that allows them to use the official trademark for 5 years.
This is great news. While it is just getting underway,  it will give donors and the public confidence in charities they wish to support.
