The Standards for Excellence Institute invites national, state, and local level nonprofit intermediaries to apply to become Replication Partners and offer the Standards program to their communities. Replication provides a unique opportunity for organizations to launch a fully developed, comprehensive program of nonprofit capacity building without spending years in program development.

Replication Partners are licensed to use all Standards program materials, including the Standards for Excellence code, educational resources, training curricula, accreditation program materials and public relations and public education information in a geographically defined area or for a specific group of affiliates, chapters, or related organizations.
