Ifrah Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors whose principal responsibilities are strategic direction of the organisation, monitoring compliance while ensuring the efficient and effective use of resources. The Board of Directors meets on average 6 times per year and is made up of a variety of pertinent skills to compliment the delivery of the Foundation’s mission. The Foundation’s Board of Directors operates sub-committee as needed and currently has two: Governance and Finance sub-committees. No remuneration is paid to Directors for their services on the Board. Directly incurred expenses are reimbursed, if claimed. Ifrah Foundation’s Directors are required to declare any conflicts of interest at the start of every Board meeting.
In November 2018 the Charities Regulator launched the Charities Governance Code, which sets the minimum standards, which everyone on the board of a registered charity, should ensure their charity meets in order to effectively manage and control their organisations.
The Charities Governance Code consists of six principles of governance. These are:
Advancing charitable purpose
Behaving with integrity
Being accountable and transparent
The six principles are linked to the legal duties of charity trustees. The Code specifically aims to help charity trustees to put good governance systems and processes in place which will assist them in meeting their legal duties under charity law.
Good governance minimises the risk of fraud and other damaging practices – ensuring a charity is managed in a professional, transparent, and accountable way. This also serves to give confidence to funders and donors.
Ifrah Foundation has achieved full compliance with the 6 principles of the Charities Regulators Charity Governance Code.
