Standard 6


Have a board policy of assessing, no less than every two years, the organization's performance and effectiveness and of determining future actions required to achieve its mission.

Information Needed from Charity to Determine Compliance:

The charity provides a copy of its board policy on performance and effectiveness assessments.


The Alliance confirms that a policy is in place and that such policy calls for an assessment at least every two years. The policy need not use the words "performance" and/or "effectiveness" but should make clear that the charity intends to formally evaluate its success and impact in fulfilling its mission, goals and objectives.
