By Rick Smith, Acting CEO, Hydrocephalus Association
I’m pleased and proud to forward some great news for the Hydrocephalus Association, and its many volunteers and donors: the National Health Council (NHC), the nation’s largest association of national health related organizations, has renewed HA’s Certification for Charitable Accountability.
The NHC requires all of its member organizations to meet a comprehensive set of standards in the areas of governance, human resources, programs, fundraising, finance, accounting and reporting, and evaluation. These standards are completely aligned with the Standards for Charitable Accountability adopted by the Better Business Bureau, and the Association meets ALL 20 of these standards as well.
Below are the links to both the National Health Council and the Better Business Bureau if anyone would like to learn more about these standards.
