Purpose

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
1
The organization's practices reflect full implementation of the standard.
2
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.
3
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  • The mission statement is poorly written or outdated and as a result, it has limited use in guiding organizational decisions; or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.
4
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.
