Principles & Practices

  • FUND 15: Nonprofits should regularly communicate with constituents regarding their activities and should make such information available through free and paid media.
  • FUND 15: A nonprofit should plan its communications to tell the story of the organization and maintain consistent, mission-focused and timely communication with donors.
