Charitable board members are the first line of defense in protecting charitable assets. The adoption and monitoring of policies and procedures are critical in these efforts. Charitable organizations should have policies on conflicts of interest, records retention, whistleblower protection, cash management and internal controls, to name a few.
The Charitable Law Section would like to compile sample policies to share with organizations reviewing governance matters. Do you have organizational policies you would be willing to share? We might or might not redact out identifying information about your organization. Let us know if that makes a difference.
So if you think your organization has some sound policies in place that might be helpful for other organizations, please email it to CharitableLaw@OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov
. It would be most helpful to receive the policies in Word format.
