Foundation board members accept the responsibility to guide foundations wisely and with care, to give their time and attention to ensuring that the foundation is operated for public benefit, and to make certain that legal, ethical and fiduciary standards are met.

The Council's board and governance resources are designed to provide the tools and knowledge essential to understanding the governance of foundations.
