Core Values
America’s Charities success is derived from an
engaged board of directors and a dedicated staff.
Together, our work is guided by our core values, which
we revised and the board approved in 2013. These
three core values guide the organization as it meets the
challenges and opportunities in our sector:
Culture of Collaboration and Excellence:
By
passionately working together with all stakeholders, we
challenge each other to achieve the highest levels of
professional excellence.
Dedication to Diversity and Integrity:
Embracing
diversity and delivering the utmost value to our
stakeholders, we believe integrity is the foundation
of our individual and collective actions that drives an
organization of which we are proud.
Commitment to Engagement and Connectivity:
With
an innovative and empowering spirit, we engage all
stakeholders, and the greater society at large, through
solutions and ideas that shape social responsibility
trends and advance sustainable, effective philanthropy.
