Standards for Excellence Fact Sheet


"There could be no better guide than the Standards program. With a commitment for ethical conduct and accountability, the Standards for Excellence are an agency’s roadmap for reaching its goals. Over the course of many months, board and staff members attended Standards workshops, adopted and amended important governance policies, and conducted a top-to-bottom review of agency operations, procedures and controls.

The Standards for Excellence program is one every nonprofit organization should participate in to give these key stakeholders – board, staff, auditors, contributors, peers – the confidence and peace-of-mind that the agency is committed to the highest standards for ethics and accountability. The guidance, tools and support provided by PANO and its staff as part of the process are invaluable."

"It is not an easy task to pass the standards, but with the PANO staff assistance, all who are willing can become accredited. It is a great way to run an ethical and transparent operation. It is also an opportunity to have better results with their grant writing; we have boosted the yes’s from no’s, in receiving local grants from various municipalities."

Kay Washington
Senior Executive Director
