Fundraising Committee
The Fundraising Committee's job is not simply to raise money. Instead, the Fundraising Committee is responsible for overseeing the organization's overall fundraising and, in particular, the fundraising done by the board. To accomplish this, its responsibilities are:

  • To work with staff to establish a fundraising plan that incorporates a series of appropriate vehicles, such as special events, direct mail, product sales, etc.

  • To work with fundraising staff in their efforts to raise money

  • To take the lead in certain types of outreach efforts, such as chairing a dinner/dance

    committee or hosting fundraising parties, etc.

  • To be responsible for involvement of all board members in fundraising, such as having board

    members make telephone calls to ask for support, and

  • To monitor fundraising efforts to be sure that ethical practices are in place, that donors are

    acknowledged appropriately, and that fundraising efforts are cost-effective.

Finance Committee

The Finance Committee (often called the Budget and Finance Committee) tasks are:

  • To review budgets initially prepared by staff, to help develop appropriate procedures for budget preparations (such as meaningful involvement by program directors), and on a consistency between the budget and the organization's plans

  • To report to the board any financial irregularities, concerns, opportunities

  • To recommend financial guidelines to the board (such as to establish a reserve fund or to

    obtain a line of credit for a specified amount)

  • To work with staff to design financial reports and ensure that reports are accurate and timely

  • To oversee short and long-term investments, unless there is a separate investments

    committee

  • To recommend selection of the auditor and work with the auditor, unless there is a separate

    audit committee, and

  • To advise the executive director and other appropriate staff on financial priorities and

    information systems, depending on committee member expertise.

Board Development Committee

In some ways the most influential of all the committees, the Board Development Committee (sometimes called the Nominating Committee or the Committee on Trustees) is responsible for the general affairs of the board. While the specific tasks of this committee vary greatly from organization to organization, they usually include some or all of the following responsibilities:

  • To prepare priorities for board composition

  • To meet with prospective board members and recommend candidates to the board

  • To recommend a slate of officers to the board

  • To conduct orientation sessions for new board members and to organize training sessions for

    the entire board, and

  • To suggest new, non-board individuals for committee membership.

Program Committee

The Program Committee is often comprised of board members who are most familiar with the approaches and operations of the organization's programs. (Some boards feel that the organization's program--its "products"--should be overseen by the whole board.) Depending on its make-up and programs, this committee's most common responsibilities are:

  • To oversee new program development, and to monitor and assess existing programs

  • To initiate and guide program evaluations, and

  • To facilitate discussions about program priorities for the agency.



Board Members
form part of the governing body of an organization. They are committed to the long-term interests of the organization and meet regularly to oversee and direct business operations, set policies, approve business decisions, evaluate executive performances and fulfill fiduciary responsibilities.
