A Kumarian Press Book
In 2004, Independent Sector, the major trade organization for US nonprofits, convened a panel to recommend actions to strengthen nonprofit governance and ethical standards. The panel's report, some three years in the making, highlighted 33 principles that it recommended nonprofits adopt. The report was overwhelmingly welcomed by the nonprofit sector, but the task of translating principles into practice remains a challenge.
In Advancing Nonprofit Stewardship Through Self-Regulation, Christopher Corbett points the way forward for nonprofits by identifying specific strategies for implementing Independent Sector's principles. Corbett shows how organizations can navigate demands for increased accountability and transparency within a setting of integrity and trust. His book is essential reading not only for the leaders of US nonprofits, but also for those in NGOs facing similar challenges around the world.
