Principles of Effectiveness for Nonprofit Organizations

The ASU Center for Nonprofit Leadership and Management's 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 allows nonprofits the opportunity to find what weaknesses exist in a reassuring environment, and provides a roadmap for strengthening their organization. It's building the capacity of organizations through self-examination. To learn more about this program, please click here. http://www.asu.edu/copp/nonprofit/asst/asst_pofe_info.htm
