Healthy nonprofits lead to healthy communities.

The Guide was developed with support from a 50 member Advisory Committee, as well as guidance from state nonprofit associations from around the country.

The Guide pays particular attention to legal compliance, transparency and accountability and was developed to help people understand the foundation of a healthy and sustainable nonprofit in New Mexico.

Understanding where you stand currently and where you need to be moving forward will help your organization flourish.

The Guide includes 12 guiding principles, legally required practices and recommended standard practices. 

The Companion Workbook was designed to support organizations in developing an action plan for improved operations and governance.
