Creating nonprofit policies begins with knowing what they are. Policies are the operational guidelines for an organization. The purpose of policies is to protect and steer the staff and the board as they fulfill the mission of the organization. They are a reference tool for appropriate action, ethical decision making, and for dealing with potential or actual conflicts.
Policies can paraphrase a law, explain a procedure, clarify a principle, or express a desired goal. They are the protocol to follow that, when properly used, helps diminish embarrassing or potentially harmful situations, improper behavior, and ineffective decision making. An organization usually has board-related, personnel, and financial policies.
