Council on Accreditation
COA accreditation is an objective, independent, and reliable validation of an agency’s performance. The COA accreditation process involves a detailed review and analysis of an organization’s administration, management, and service delivery functions against international standards of best practice. The standards driving accreditation ensure that services are well-coordinated, culturally competent, evidence-based, outcomes-oriented, and provided by a skilled and supported workforce. COA accreditation demonstrates accountability in the management of resources, sets standardized best practice thresholds for service and administration, and increases organizational capacity and accountability by creating a framework for ongoing quality improvement.


NonproftsFirst Accreditation process evaluates standards in a number of key areas, including: board governance, strategic planning, fundraising, risk management, human resources, and financial management. The Accreditation process presents an organization’s leadership with a road map, through resources, links, and sample documents that provide a crucial foundation for building and sustaining a solid infrastructure. To ensure that the process is objective, compliance with Accreditation standards is verified by subject matter experts in each area of review, offering vital third-party confirmation of your organization’s commitment to management excellence.
