  • To provide individual organizations striving for excellence -- and the board and staff members who lead them -- with a tool for strengthening their governance, management, and operations;

Nonprofit organizations are essential to the vitality of communities. They enrich quality of life, epitomize the highest societal values, and strengthen our democracy. Volunteers, board members, and employees become involved with a nonprofit because of the organization’s public benefit mission. Therefore, the continued success of North Carolina’s nonprofit organizations requires broad public support and confidence. This document publicly testifies to the nonprofit sector’s commitment for excellence.
