Guiding Principles for Nonprofits: Leadership, Evaluation and Sound Management
The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven and the Valley Community Foundation (The Community Foundations) are committed to supporting nonprofit organizations in our region that strive towards providing the highest quality services and advance ideas, innovations and techniques that improve the quality of life for our residents. It is important that nonprofits continually improve their services and programs by applying what they learn through self-reflection, assessment, evaluation and use of data, knowledge building, risk taking, and the use of sound and prudent financial management practices.
