Policies (General)

A policy is an organization’s official position on a certain subject, which should be consistent with its mission and values. The intent of a policy is to guide decisions and actions in a certain way by addressing what should happen and why. Policies differ from procedures in that procedures are usually a written explanation of how the organization wants something to be done. They are usually very specific and detailed.

Having policies is crucial both for the protection of the charity and for providing guidance to staff and volunteers about how the ministry wishes to conduct itself. Good policies also save time in the long run because they capture the high level decisions that allow organizations to delegate decision-making more effectively.
