Treasurer Specific Board Member Commitments

  • Financial management and/or oversight - A treasurer will primarily manage and oversee the management of the financial affairs of the organization, often including basic tasks as reconciling bank statements, managing record keeping of incoming and outgoing expenses. The treasurer should also be knowledgeable about who has access to the organizations funds and any outstanding bills or debts owed. The Treasurer should create and maintain systems for ensuring the organizations solvency and oversee the development of the organizations financial policies. Helpful policies to consider include check signing authority, expense reimbursement, credit card usage, and petty cash policies.

  • Budgets - The Treasurer will be responsible for preparing, or assisting in preparing the annual budget, as well as regularly monitoring and comparing the actual revenues and expenses incurred against such budget. The development of a budget that supports the organizations goals and drives decision-making is an important part of an organizations success in effectuating its mission. The budget should be reviewed and approved by the board, however, the Treasurer should be prepared to explain and justify the documents

  • Reports - The Treasurer should have thorough knowledge and understanding of the organizations financial reports and important financial ratios. The Treasurer should keep the board informed of key financial events, trends, and concerns, and assessments of the organizations fiscal health. The Treasurer is also generally responsible for completing, or ensuring the completion of, required financial reporting forms such as is IRS Form 990

  • Financial Liaison - The Treasurer should be able to translate financial concepts and information for board members who do not have financial backgrounds or substantial financial experience. The Treasurer should spend time learning the particulars of the organizations finances and the applicable laws, which may include laws related to earned income, the unrelated business income tax, appropriate expenditures, and prudent investments. The Treasurer can be most effective to the board when facilitating and encouraging the boards strategic thinking about the short and long term financial vitality of the organization in relation to its advancement of the organizations mission.
    Ultimately, while the financial management is the primary focus of the treasurer, the entire board shares the responsibility of financial oversight and accountability.

Mission Statement

Pawsitive Hearts is a startup organization dedicated to impacting the quality of life for abused, unwanted, or abandoned dogs.


Here at Pawsitive Hearts, we are proud to be your local foster-based dog rescue in the Southeastern and Central Ohio areas. As a 501 c3 non-profit organization, we are 100% volunteer-based. We proudly assist in the prevention of euthanasia by reducing the overcrowding shelters experience. Since we are not a traditional shelter, we do not have a facility for our dogs, so we rely solely on a select list of fosters to provide a safe environment before adoption. All of our dogs are fully vetted by reputable veterinarians in the area, so you can be assured your new family member will be happy and healthy when they come home. Check out our site for a list of available dogs adoption application information today!



We'll work with your schedule.
