Internal and External Oversight

The Directors who serve and oversee Ski & Ride for a Cure help to develop and advance the interests of our donors in ways that go beyond just raising money.

 

Good governance is more than just supporting the organization – it also means representing the community’s interests in what we do. Our Board of Directors has three fundamental legal obligations, or fiduciary duties, which apply to everything we do.

 

Working in partnership with the professional staff, the Directors also cooperate with key legal bodies and various independent organizations that evaluate charities on many factors, not the least of which is an organization’s degree of accountability and transparency.

Duty of Care

The amount of care that an ordinarily prudent person would exercise in a like position and under similar circumstances. This describes the criteria our Directors must give to making decisions on behalf of Ski & Ride for a Cure.

Duty of Loyalty

Keeping the interests of Ski & Ride for a Cure in mind always when making decisions on behalf of the organization.

Duty of Obedience

Requires board members to be faithful to our mission; consistent with the mission statement, Articles of Incorporation, bylaws, and tax-exempt documentation.
