One of the most critical aspects of our work is to steward the gifts of our members from the moment we receive donation through the final grant disbursement. When it comes to proper procedures and practices, we must protect our leaders and the funds entrusted to our organization.

Although you will likely have an attorney or accountant on your board lead this effort, strong governance is a vital part of your work and the responsibility of every leader.

With thanks,

As a qualified nonprofit under IRS code 501(c)3, collecting and distributing hundreds of thousands of dollars each year, your Impact100 chapter requires strong governance.
