The Libra Foundation is currently governed by a Board of four Trustees. The Trustees, as a Board, set policies relating to governance, expenditures, management, professional standards, investment and grant making. They also represent the Foundation before the public, select the President and review the performance and set the compensation of the President and CEO. The Trustees meet four times annually and otherwise, as needed. A two-person Audit Committee reviews all financial statements and works with the Foundation's Chief Financial Officer in oversight of the external auditors. Currently, all Trustees (excepting the President) are independent and all are subject to a Board-approved "conflict of interest" provision.
In accordance with proposed regulation and in the interest of financial transparency, the Trustees review the Foundation’s Form 990 prior to filing with the I.R.S.
The Foundation and the activities of its Trustees and staff members are governed by the following documents:
Standards of Independence

Trustee, Officer and Staff Code of Conduct

Trustee, Officer and Staff Code of Ethics

Whistleblower Protection Statement
