Benefits of Pursuing Accreditation by Standards for Excellence Institute

Perry at desk

Today, I'm part of a set of #volunteers to review an application for accreditation through a confidential process.

🌏 Nonprofit #accreditation and recognition through the Standards of Excellence Institute is a national #program created by the Maryland Nonprofits

💡 The #mission of both is to strengthen #organizations and networks for greater quality of life and equity.

===> I find this opportunity a privilege as a Standards for Excellence Licensed Consultant to provide this support - and a side benefit is that I constantly learn from this experience. 

📔 Accreditation can remove some of the guesswork for #giving, a benefit to #funders who trust the third-party review and support provided to organizations going through the accreditation process. 

🔗 I believe that the process benefits #nonprofits by increasing #revenue, strengthening #boards, and improving operational effectiveness.

*** Accreditation is offered nationwide and many statewide organizations and nonprofit networks such as Pennsylvania Association of Nonprofit Organizations (PANO), create their own welcoming, accessible approach and program in keeping with the national standards.
