Register of Accountability

The Iowa Register of Accountability is a voluntary listing of charitable nonprofits who want to publicly share their commitment to practices and training that help their organizations operate more efficiently, effectively, and ethically.

The Register grew out of The Iowa Principles & Practices for Charitable Nonprofit Excellence (P&P) which was developed by the Iowa Governor’s Nonprofit Task Force in 2004. Now in its fourth edition, the P&P serves as a guide for new, emerging, and established organizations. The basic precept of the P&P is that self-governance by well-informed and well-trained members of the nonprofit community remains the foundation for building and maintaining public trust. P&P training is one of a number of training opportunities that can lead to inclusion on the Register.
