Nonprofit Leadership Alliance Donor Policy

(As stated in the Gift Acceptance Policy approved by the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance Board of Directors, Revised September 2016.)
Responsibility to Donors
The Alliance is committed to a relationship with its donors based on the highest ethical standard. This involves treating all transactions with donors in strict confidence. The Alliance has adopted the Donor Bill of Rights of the Association of Fundraising Professionals as official policy. The Alliance has also adopted practices that conform to general nonprofit industry standards. Donors are always strongly encouraged to discuss gifts with their financial advisors. Donors are acknowledged for their contributions and the Alliance offers recognition to the donor in its annual report and through various forms of recognition such as plaques.

 


 

Nonprofit Leadership Alliance Whistleblower Policy

NLA encourages its employees to report improper activities in the workplace and will protect employees from retaliation for making any such report in good faith.

Employee Rights
Employees have the right to report, without suffering retaliation, any activity by Nonprofit Leadership Alliance or any of its employees that the employee reasonably believes: 1) violates any state or federal law; 2) violates or amounts to noncompliance with a state or federal rule or regulation; or 3) violates fiduciary responsibilities by a nonprofit corporation. In addition, employees can refuse to participate in an activity that would result in a violation of state or federal statutes, or a violation or noncompliance with a state or federal rule or regulation. Employees are also protected from retaliation for having exercised any of these rights in any former employment.

The whistleblower protection laws do not entitle employees to violate a confidential privilege of Nonprofit Leadership Alliance (such as the attorney-client privilege) or improperly disclose trade-secret information.

Where to Report
Employees have the duty to comply with all applicable laws and to assist Nonprofit Leadership Alliance to ensure legal compliance. An employee who suspects a problem with legal compliance is required to report the situation(s) to the President/CEO or Chair of the Board of Directors if the complaint involves the President.

Employees may also report information regarding possible unlawful activity to an appropriate government or law enforcement agency.

 


Records Management and Retention Policy

The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance retains documents in accordance to appropriate industry standards to ensure that records and documents are adequately protected and maintained. Documents that are no longer needed or of value are discarded at the end of the retention period. All documents that include sensitive or protected information are stored in appropriately secure environments and destroyed in a secure manner.
