Sound governance increases the nonprofit organization’s viability and sustainability.

GOV 3: Mission

The organization’s mission is responsive to the needs and aspirations of the community and guides the administration and delivery of services.

Rating Indicators
The organization's practices reflect full implementation of the standard.
Practices are basically sound but there is room for improvement, e.g., 
  • The mission statement is in effect and useful in guiding the organization, but it needs updating and is currently under review by the organization's governing body.
Practice requires significant improvement, e.g.,
  • The mission statement is poorly written or outdated and as a result, it has limited use in guiding organizational decisions; or
  • Human services are not identified as a major component or focus of the organization.
Implementation of the standard is minimal or there is no evidence of implementation at all; e.g.,
  • There is no written mission statement or the organization's practices and services are at odds with its mission.
