The Charities Aid Foundation is a registered charity
(no.268369). Our Board of Trustees is responsible for the
management of CAF and is required to comprise:
- not less than eight Trustees appointed by resolution of the
Trustees, and the Chairman of NCVO
The Board meets at least five times a year. All Trustees are
non-executive and none of them receives remuneration from CAF. They
are appointed for a term of three years and except for the Chairman
of the NCVO, no Trustee may hold office for more than three
consecutive terms. Our Declaration of Trust empowers the Trustees
to take such steps as are necessary to achieve our objectives and
make appropriate arrangements for the sound management of our
organisation and activities.
The Trustees delegate management responsibilities to the Chief
Executive and certain other functions to the sub-committees
described below. Each sub-committee has specific terms of reference
and a chairman appointed by the Trustees.
Our Patron is HRH The Duke of Edinburgh KG KT.
