What is Social Accountability?

Social accountability (community benefit) programs or activities provide treatment and/or promote health and healing as a response to identified community needs.

Your Social Accountability programs are “a measure of an organization’s commitment to its mission, its stakeholders and the greater community; demonstrates fulfillment of the requirements and expectations of tax-exempt organizations.” – Social Accountability Study conducted by LeadingAge, Holleran, and Lyon Software

Telling the social accountability story is more important than ever

  • Justifies tax-exemption in a time of fiscal constraint
  • Helps support philanthropy
  • Helps build staff, board support
  • Tell your story every year, every day – Julie Trocchio, Catholic Health Association
