Support for Better Governance
We are also interested in using our resources to improve governance of not-for-profit organisations. Having funded a report on the state of trusteeship from New Philanthropy Capital in 2009, we have sponsored annual updates on developments. These have been well received as a contribution to greater understanding of topical issues.
We have hosted a number of seminars for trustees at the Hall. These are mounted by NPC and have been well attended; the topics have ranged from strategies for dealing with challenges in straitened times to the benefits of collaboration and merger.
We are also exploring how we might help support continuing development and dissemination of best practice in charity governance by working with some of the major stakeholders in this area.
