National Health Council Standards of Excellence Certification Program®
The National Health Council (NHC) has adopted a set of good operating practices to ensure that its patient advocacy group members (also known as voluntary health agencies) maintain the highest standards of organizational effectiveness and public stewardship. The standards cover the areas of governance, human resources, programs, fundraising, finance, accounting and reporting, and evaluation. The standards are completely aligned with, but more extensive than, the Standards for Charitable Accountability adopted by the Better Business Bureau's Wise Giving Alliance (WGA).
Compliance with the National Health Council Standards of Excellence Certification Program® is a requirement for membership in the National Health Council by patient advocacy groups. The National Health Council demands the highest standards of accountability and ethical practice from its patient advocacy group members to assure the public that these organizations are worthy of support.
