Your 8 Online Charity Health Check Questionnaires

The system creates 8 management questionnaires that are unique to your charity and, collectively, cover every area of activity. You don't need any charity or management experience to use it.  The system will walk you through each, enabling you to understand the key issues and how to manage these well.  And, because these are built specific to your charity's needs, they work for even the smallest non-profit.

  • Fundraising - maximising your income.
  • Governance - ensuring you trustee board is working together well.
  • People - enabling your people to do more of the great work they do.
  • Communications - engaging stakeholders and funders.
  • Finance & Resources - making sure your finances work well and you're making maximum use of your resources.
  • Risk - identifying and manging risk to keep your charity and people safe.
  • Operations - ensuring you are delivering your services as well as you possibly can.
  • Strategy - making longer term plans and decision to maximise your charity's impact.

Management Check Any Area Of Your Charity Quickly And Simply

Choose a questionnaire from the tabs at the top of your screen, read the simple instructions and then click Start.  The system will display a simple, plain English statement describing an activity in your charity.  Click the star rating, based on the extent to which you see that happening and how important it is to you, or if any activity isn't applicable, click Not Applicable.  Then click Next.  That's all you have to do.

It should take no more than 30mins, as long as you don’t start exploring the resources it displays!  Once you’ve completed the questionnaire, you can access it and the help and resources at any time via your dashboard or the query system.

Charity Excellence is user led, so make sure you rate the questionnaire once you've completed it and add comments about how it could be made even better for you. Nearly half of those using it rate it 10/10.

Identifying Your Trustee & Management Priorities & Opportunities

As you complete questionnaires, your interactive dashboard is updated with your results.  Your results are colour coded using a traffic light system enabling you to see at a glance what your priorities are and find opportunities. It also displays sector benchmarking data, and you can click any of your scores to run the underlying report, access the free help and resources, then click Export to download ana action plana and get started.

The Huge Resource Hub - Templates, Tools, Checklists and Guides

All Charity Excellence systems tap into the huge collective expertise of the sector and the wider internet.  The resource hub is so large, the system finds the help, tools, checklists, regulatory guidance and guides you need for you.

And It'll Help You If You Get Stuck

From your dashboard it's 2 clicks to everything, but the system will help you, if you get stuck on anything.

  • On 1st login, it displays a pop-up box in each screen, that explains what it does and how to use it.
  • There are also short in-system videos, and you can click the ? symbols in any part of the system to get help.
  • And there are also Troubleshooting and FAQs links, plus the Charity Terms button that explains charity and management terms in plain English.

Reducing Workload And Answering Difficult Charity Management Questions

The query system makes answering difficult questions easy, with 100 criteria to choose from, and it also connects you to all the help and resources.  For example, do we claim all our tax reliefs, how could we improve our website, how innovative are we and how good are we at promoting wellbeing?

Quality Mark - Demonstrating Your Excellence To Stakeholders, Including Funders

With all the scandals and abuse, the Quality Mark demonstrates your commitment to excellence to funders and other stakeholders and that you are one of our many fantastic charities.  There's no additional workload, as the system does it all for you. Once you've completed the 8 questionnaires and passed the quality scoring assessment, the quality mark will appear on your dashboard, and you'll be sent the logo for this year.
