NPCC’s Declaration of Nonprofit Rights

We are thrilled to launch NPCC’s Declaration of Nonprofit Rights. The Declaration of Nonprofit Rights is NPCC’s bold vision for a powerful nonprofit sector. It is NPCC’s North Star, the guiding principles that form the basis of our worldview of the sector’s needs and potentials, and in turn, guide our day-to-day public policy work to meet those needs and potential.

The Declaration articulates NPCC’s understanding, through the four principles, of what nonprofits must have in order to be engaged and effective.

The rights-based language is intentional, and provides an aspirational vision that we will work to achieve.

The Declaration is not a call to action; it is action.
