Chart explaining the organizational structure of NDF

Who runs NDF?

Our Executive Director reports to a Board of Directors who, in turn, “govern” the organization. This means they make the philosophical and legal decisions about the future and fiscal soundness of the NPO, but do so as unpaid volunteers.

What is the difference between a Board Member and a Volunteer?

While board members volunteer their time and expertise without pay, they are voted in by the existing Board of Directors and are bound by fiduciary responsibility which is taken very seriously. They are monitored by the IRS and the State Attorney General as well as by the public in the form of watchdog groups. The job of a good CEO is to keep the Board from making mistakes that can expose them and the organization. Board Members are duty-bound to serve only the mission of the organization over and above any self-interest or by personal loyalties to one another.

How can I get involved with NDF?

A good volunteer is willing to serve the needs of the organization and work in tandem with staff or the CEO to carry out work that would normally be done by paid staff. We are always on the lookout  for those who can give of their time and expertise! To learn about the many ways you can help us, please click here.
