Term Affiliate Relationships Development
Code TP-4000.8000-050
Definition Programs that help national nonprofit organizations, small businesses and other groups open a branch office, chapter, affiliate, site, franchise or other offshoot in another location; or define conditions under which an independent organization with a similar mission can apply for and obtain affiliate status. State, regional or local affiliates may have complete local autonomy or may be under the central control of the national organization. There are also differences in the degree to which national organizations set standards for and regulate their affiliates; how funds, fees and financial accountability are distributed among the entities; and what happens when affiliates cease to be affiliated.
