    Financial policies are useful as a guideline for accepting gifts, dividing duties, authorizing financial transactions, obtaining proper receipts.This type of volunteer review is no replacement for the services of a professional accountant but it is certainly better than doing nothing and can provide small organizations with a modest level of assurance.

    Establishing good fiscal policies and procedures is more of an investment of time and attention than money. Very small nonprofits or even all-volunteer groups.One of the most constructive and proactive ways a board can send a message that its organization is committed to accountability, responsiveness, and stewardship is to draft a code of ethics to guid.
