Standards for Excellence® offers a robust program designed to help organizations put their values into action, providing a means of structuring work in ways that reflect and reinforce the values of ethical, accountable operations and governance, each and every day. Recent research shows that focus on a culture of ethics within an organization is a vital condition for achieving mission, and ultimately, achieving what is possible for our communities—the Standards provides an effective means to this end. The accreditation process included an evaluation by PANO staff and scrutiny by an anonymous jury of peers who reviewed the organization’s compliance with the Standards.

The Standards for Excellence program, which just celebrated its 12th anniversary in Pennsylvania, was conceived by Maryland Nonprofits, and is known nationally through the Standards for Excellence Institute.
