PANO Certified: Connections Work Is A Standards For Excellence Accredited Organization


Connections Work is proud to be certified by the Pennsylvania Association of Nonprofit Organizations (PANO) through their Standards for Excellence certification program. Connections Work successfully completed this certification program by voluntarily opening itself up to scrutiny by a "jury of its peers" who examined our organization for compliance with PANO's Standards for Excellence: An Ethics and Accountability Code for the Nonprofit Sector.

Standards of Excellence are based on the fundamental values such as honesty, integrity, fairness, respect, trust, responsibility, and accountability. Connections Work's programs and services, management, fundraising, and financial practices were examined in depth before the certification was awarded. Connections Work was one of the first organizations to be certified under the Standards program that began in 2002.
