Board Responsibilities & Structure

Project details

What we need
  • Document outlining relationship of board to your organization, including its role, responsibilities, and structure
  • Document defining the roles and responsibilities of individual board members, including empty seats if applicable
Additional details

Develop a Board Terms of Reference

What we have in place
  • We currently have 7 dynamic founder board members plus the managing director,, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a constitution that needs to be revised, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How this will help
This project will save us $7,248 , allowing us to focus on delivering our programmes to young people

As a young organization that has transitioned from working as a CBO to a non-profit organization, we need the active strategic and practical support of a Board of Directors.
