Event description

Description

Two of Australia’s leading professional associations have collaborated to develop a powerful and insightful governance program for trustees and directors of charitable foundations who invest and distribute funds for social good in Australia and overseas. Being a trustee or a director/responsible person of a charitable foundation and/or a Private/Public Ancillary Fund (PAF/PuAF) is an intrinsically rewarding role. It also brings significant responsibilities. Trustees of each have the ultimate responsibility for its governance. They are responsible for directing the affairs of the foundation to ensure it is well run and compliant with the law, relevant Guidelines and the Trust Deed.
