Sample Nonprofit Policies

Policies reflect an organization’s values, ensure continuity of management and delineate parameters that serve as guidelines for action or decisions. They help build and sustain public trust and the reputation of the organization.

Sample policy language can streamline the process and is a good starting point. But it is never a good idea to simply insert your organization’s name and present the document to the board for approval. The policy MUST be discussed and tailored to reflect your organization’s culture, to conform to your other policies and to ensure that it is embraced by everyone involved in its implementation. For a quick overview, please download our one-page Guide to Policy Making.

"I have a lot of respect for artists of any kind who are trying express their creativity and do what they love. Volunteering is a way we can help them financially to continue that pursuit." Larry Rubin, accountant
