The Accountability Standards® are Charities Review Council’s primary resource for strengthening nonprofits’ commitment to accountable practices, particularly in the areas of Public Disclosure, Governance, Financial Activity, and Fundraising.
The Accountability Wizard® nonprofit review process is an additional resource available to assist your nonprofit in strengthening its commitment to accountability and transparency. This educational self-assessment tool allows your nonprofit to apply the Standards to itself, giving you the opportunity to align your organization with sound practices and procedures, as well as demonstrate its accountability and transparency to its donors.
The Document Checklist for the Accountability Wizard® lists each of the documents required by the review process. It also provides sample policies and other helpful resources for several of them.
