Principles of Effectiveness for Nonprofit Organizations
The Principles of Effectiveness for Nonprofit Organizations program is a tool that helps nonprofits assess their organization's strengths and weaknesses, create a plan to address what training they need, and undergo a peer review process that affirms the organization's advanced level of capacity.
This process essentially affords nonprofits the opportunity to find what weaknesses exist in a reassuring environment, and a roadmap that leads to a more effective nonprofit organization. It's simply building the capacity of organizations through self-examination. To learn more about this program, please click here.
