West Virginia’s nonprofit organizations provide a wide variety of valuable services and products that are es- sential to communities across the state. The success of these nonprofits is dependent upon public confidence and support. The West Virginia Nonprofit Association (WVNPA) has developed Principles & Practices for Nonprofit excellence to serve as a model for West Vir- ginia nonprofit organizations to guide their operations and practices, enabling them to meet their missions. The Principles & Practices are intended to describe best practices in managing and governing nonprofit organi- zations. These principles provide benchmarks to help an organization determine how efficiently and effectively it is working towards its mission and provide recommen- dations for improvement. The Principles are organized into eight categories, which are described below. The individual principles and practices are listed in a separate document, which is available from the West Virginia Nonprofit Association.Categories of Principles & Practices include:

  • Mission & Program
  • Planning
  • Governance
  • Financial Management
  • Outcomes & Evaluation
  • Legal/Compliance
  • Human Resources
  • Marketing & Communications
