Accreditation

It has been said that only the tough survive. But we think when it comes to Down syndrome associations, those who are prepared not only survive--they thrive!  DSAIA's Accreditation program helps organizations achieve excellence in nonprofit management and can help YOU be prepared for whatever challenges arise. This exclusive DSAIA member benefit combines core competencies with a commitment to continuous improvement. Along with way, mentoring, coaching, networking, and training help DSAIA members achieve this important designation. DSAIA Accreditation can be accomplished on your own timeline; it is a self-paced program designed to assess your organization’s strengths and needs. 

The newly updated DSAIA Accreditation categories are:
• Organizational Management
• Governance Structure
• Financial Management
• Policies
• Programs
• Personnel
• Development & Fundraising
• Communication & Marketing
• Advocacy
