Project Boards

The FCF Board of Directors is the final legal authority over the entire foundation, and projects are responsible for following all FCF policies and procedures. FCF's Board of Directors gives final approval of any significant changes related to the project description or changes in the project director. The FCF Board of Directors delegates most ongoing accountability to the project boards. These boards meet once a quarter and function under one of the following two board structures:

Project board members support the project by encouraging the director and staff, proposing solutions to problems, suggesting ways to thrive and progress, and praying for the project and those it serves. We also encourage board members to contribute financially or promote the project to potential donors. If a project is not operating ethically or legally or following FCF policy, please contact If a board member has concerns about the annual budget or other financial issues, contact

Project boards must consist of at least 5 people and no more than 3 from the project itself. FCF leadership works together with the project director to select qualified leaders who bring skills and experience to the board. The majority of the board members should be people in the local area of the project who can visit in person and who understand the operational and cultural challenges of the project.

If a project board member resigns, please contact to discuss a replacement member.
