The Board works alongside Foundation staff to ensure funds are invested and allocated wisely and in compliance with Foundation policies, the “Donor Bill of Rights” and State and Federal requirements. Each year the Foundation is subject to an annual audit by an independent public accountant to confirm that funds are spent properly and in accordance with donor instructions.
