The Clean Air Fund is a UK registered charity. It is governed by a Board of Trustees. The Board has legal, financial and managerial responsibility for the Charity. The Board works closely with the Executive Director and Senior Management Team to ensure the organisation is well run.
The Board meets on a quarterly basis. The Clean Air Fund has six Trustees, of which two are funder Trustees and four are independent Trustees. The Chair is one of the independent Trustees.
The Board is supported by two sub-committees:
- The Grant Committee’s primary role is to evaluate all grants above $300k prior to them being taken to the Board for formal approval. The Grant Committee also monitors progress of existing grants and reviews learning and insight derived from grant implementation. The Grant Committee is comprised of Board members and technical experts within the field of air pollution. The Grant Committee meets before each Board meeting.
- The Finance Committee’s primary role is to provide oversight of the finance, audit and risk arrangements. The Finance Committee meets twice per year, with one meeting focusing on audit and control and the other meeting focussing on budgeting and financial planning. The Finance Committee is comprised of Board members and technical specialists in finance and risk management.
