Principles & Practices for Nonprofit Excellence: A Self-Help Tool for Organizational Effectiveness

Principles & Practices

Nonprofits play a central role in the democratic process by providing means for individuals to deliberate on public policies and decisions that affect them. To the extent possible, nonprofits should engage in public policy and advocacy activities to promote constituent, organizational, and sector interests. Nonprofits should work to promote broad public participation in public policy and advocacy efforts and should provide assistance to the public in these efforts.
