The Guidelines and Principles Assessment is free and available to all nonprofits in Kansas.
The Kansas Nonprofit Centre is pleased to offer the Guidelines & Principles program as one of our core services designed to help you identify organizational strengths and challenges and to effectively action plan for the future.
In coordination with the Nonprofit Association of the Midlands, serving Nebraska’s nonprofits, the Kansas Nonprofit Centre presents a tool for nonprofit leaders designed for:
- evaluating regulatory compliance,
- enhancing strategic planning,
- refining operational evaluation,
- supporting the growth and quality of the nonprofit sector, and
- increasing public understanding and thus public trust.
We invite every nonprofit interested in becoming stronger and more efficient to participate in our Guidelines & Principles assessment– you do not have to be a Kansas Nonprofit Centre member! The tool is structured around twelve guiding principles for nonprofits. Each section contains legal, essential, and recommended practices for you to assess your organization’s situation. At the end, your organization will receive a Guidelines & Principles report of your responses and an overview of best practices to support your organization.
To get the most out of this investment of your time, we encourage you to be completely honest with your responses; these results belong to you and your organization. We will never share your results with other organizations nor with funders.
About/Why Guidelines and Principles:
The Guidelines and Principles provide state and federal legal compliance and best practices information in 12 major areas of nonprofit management: Communication, Evaluation, Financial Management, Fundraising, Governance, Human Resources, Information Technology, Planning, Public Policy & Advocacy, Strategic Alliances, Transparency & Accountability, and Volunteer Management.
Complete these checklists if you want to
a) identify organizational strengths and challenges, and
b) effectively action-plan for the future.
We recommend each nonprofit complete these checklists at least every 24 months, or when facing a major organizational change.
