Our legal structure
The Clean Air Fund is a UK registered charity governed by a Board of Trustees. Our Trustees have legal and financial responsibility for our activities and delegate the day-to-day running of the organisation to our Senior Leadership Team. Together, they work to deliver our projects and programmes to a high level of quality.
The Board meets on a quarterly basis. The Clean Air Fund has five Trustees, of which two are funder Trustees and three are independent Trustees. The Chair is one of the independent Trustees.
The Board is supported by two sub-committees:
- The Grant and Charitable Activities Committee (GCAC): This sub-committee’s primary role is to evaluate and approve all grants and projects of $300k – $3m. Grants over $3m are approved by the Board. The GCAC is composed of funders and technical experts within the field of air pollution. The GCAC meets before each Board meeting.
- The Finance, Audit and Risk Committee: This sub-committee’s role is to provide oversight of the finance, audit and risk arrangements. The Committee meets twice per year, with one meeting focusing on audit and control and the other meeting focusing on budgeting and financial planning. The Finance, Audit and Risk Committee is made up of Trustees and technical specialists in finance and risk management.
