This is an Excerpt from an actual work-in-progress client engagement that recommends Corporate Trust Enabling™ Policies for a Canadian not-for-profit organization (name to be disclosed with permission of client upon completion).

"Our recommendations for Trust Enabling Policies are based on a top-down approach to policy development. Trust Enabling Policies are therefore organized as independent, but related sets of policies:

  1. General Provisions for Trust Enabling™ Policies define the environment and context that guides decision-making. They address Policy Management, Roles of [Client], Treatment of Information, Stakeholder Confidence, Sources of Trust, Equality of Stakeholders, and Trust Enablement™;
  2. Policies for Trust Enablement™ are specific to our Code of Practice for Trust Enablement™ and define the framework for all other Trust Enabling Policy development to be used by specific business processes. They address Acceptable Uncertainty, Ensuring Trust, Establishing Trust, and Managing Trust;
  3. Trust Enabling™ Policies for Raising Money, as this was the top management priority for Client. They address Acceptable Uncertainty, Ensuring Trust, Establishing Trust, Managing Trust and the Trust Enablement™ of information relied on by providers of funds. We recommend that similar policies be written for each of the other management priorities documented herein, which are beyond the scope of this effort;
  4. Information to be Trust Enabled™ for Stakeholders in General contains policies that require key organizational performance information to be Trust Enabled™, based on the ten performance criteria considered by [Expert 1]; and
  5. Operations to be Trust Enabled™ addresses the requirement to Trust Enable™ all [Client] business initiatives according to their priority and to Trust Enable™ contribution processes on [Client]'s web site, based on the Code of Ethical Online Philanthropic Practices of the [Expert 2].
