The environment in which nonprofits operate is changing—dramatically. Public pressure is mounting to have nonprofits come under a higher level of scrutiny and regulation. Although only two provisions of Sarbanes-Oxley currently apply to both nonprofit and publicly traded companies, visible compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley standards establishes a competitive advantage that can provide benefits to any nonprofit. Written for nonprofit practitioners, board members, funders, and potential donors, Sarbanes-Oxley for Nonprofits explores how this important piece of legislation can serve to strengthen the infrastructure of nonprofits.
