The foundation of the Standards for Excellence program is the Standards for Excellence Code: An Ethics and Accountability Code for the Nonprofit Sector. The Code helps organizations strengthen boards, manage risk, realize new efficiencies, fulfill legal and regulatory requirements or otherwise build capacity to advance their missions.
The code builds upon the legal foundations of nonprofit management, governance, and operations to embrace fundamental values such as honesty, integrity, fairness, respect, trust, compassion, responsibility, and transparency. The code consists of six Guiding Principles covering 27 topic areas with specific performance benchmarks that characterize effective, ethical, and accountable organizations.
