With all the challenges non-profit organizations and charities face, legal compliance and strong internal controls may seem like low priorities, but without addressing your obligations, you put your finances, your reputation, your directors and donors—even your organization—at significant risk.
You can use Not-for-Profit PolicyPro (NPPP) to understand the legal requirements, review your policies and practices, ensure legal compliance and minimize risk.
NPPP can help you:
Not-For-Profit PolicyPro provides the background information and the ready-to-use model policies and procedures to quickly establish and maintain your policy manual. With over 80 ready-to-use sample policies, procedures, forms and checklists, focusing on the unique needs of Canadian not-for-profit organizations, NPPP is the only resource of its kind. The sample policies can be adopted in their entirety or easily customized in Microsoft Word®.
Updated four times a year, NPPP contains policies and procedures that reflect the most current legislative requirements. The chapter introductions outline why organizations need each policy and important considerations when developing a custom policy. You'll also find essential background information on such areas as advocacy, financial management and human resources.
NPPP is co-published with The Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada), written by Jeffrey D. Sherman, Bcomm, MBA, CIM, FCPA, FCA and edited by Apolone Gentles, JD, CPA, CGA, FCCA. The resource provides the governance and administrative expertise that Canadian charities and non-profits need, plus a full suite of current compliance-focused policies, practices and other essential tools to make it easier and faster for small and medium-sized not-for-profit organizations to adopt policies and procedures and meet legal obligations.
