As per the requirement of SECP, PPAF applied for renewal of its license. One of the requirements was to get the PCP Certification. PPAF approached the Pakistan Centre for Philanthropy (PCP) in January 2015. A team of PCP officials visited PPAF from July 13-14 2015 to evaluate PPAF performance during the last three years i.e. from 2012 to 2014. The objective of certification was based on the professional and critical evaluation of PPAF. It aimed on enhancing the credibility of PPAF as a nonprofit organization, increasing its capacity to streamline and improve its systems, and helping in diversifying its resource base.
The report examined PPAF’s structure, finances, systems, procedures, processes and programmes during the period from 2012 to 2014 against standardized parameters.
