How is being on the board of a community foundation different than other board service? What are some of the unique considerations and pitfalls to avoid from a legal standpoint? Serving on the board of a community foundation can be a very rewarding experience due to the vital role these organizations play in many communities nationwide. However, by virtue of managing a multitude of funds, you might find issues arise around the board table that are new to even the most seasoned board member.

Please join Casey Summar as she discusses the fiduciary duties of a board member of a community foundation as well as any potential personal liability and how this can be addressed through insurance and other protections. In addition, we will look at special considerations for community foundation boards, primarily your responsibilities in the oversight of donor-advised funds, exercising variance power and managing investments under the Uniform Prudential Management of Institutional Funds Act (“UPMIFA”).
