Management Checklist for Development
The CASE Management Checklist for Development, created in 2005 and revised in 2013 by the CASE Commission on Philanthropy, is intended to help development managers conduct internal self-assessments of information and programs. It is not intended for use by external regulators or auditors. The checklist may be useful to both new and experienced managers as they assess their programs and may also be helpful in staff training and orientation. It is intended to be inclusive but not exhaustive, and not all items may apply to every institution. CASE also provides a Management Checklist for Institutionally Related Foundations and another for Stewardship Programs.
