A complete guide to leveraging the power of Sarbanes-Oxley--specifically for nonprofits

The first book to discuss the implications of Sarbanes-Oxley legislation as it relates to nonprofit organizations, Sarbanes-Oxley for Nonprofits is an essential guide for all nonprofit executives and boards who want to know how the new legislation can enhance their organization's mission.

By establishing a "platinum standard" of operations and governance within nonprofit organizations, executives and board members will be better equipped to attract high-quality staff and board members, as well as the attention of donors and other potential funding sources. Sarbanes-Oxley for Nonprofits presents the best practices that have emerged from the Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act (Sarbanes-Oxley) in a manner that explains their source and value to the nonprofit organization.

Written for both small and large nonprofits, Sarbanes-Oxley for Nonprofits includes:

* Practices intended to establish a "platinum standard" of operations and governance within the nonprofit
* Coverage of audits, financial statements, board activities and decision making, how to teach board members to read and interpret financial statements, conflicts of interest, whistle-blower protection, and how to leverage these standards to gain a competitive advantage
* Sarbanes-Oxley best practices and the organizational culture
* Sample documents, forms, and checklists to introduce these best practices into any nonprofit organization
* And much more!
