Fondation de France is a private-law body
Its rules of governance were drawn up to promote efficient management while guaranteeing security and proper consideration for the expectations and interests of the organisation stakeholders.
These rules are grounded in two fundamental principles of transparency and collegiality in decision-making.
Its internal organisation revolves around the Board of Directors, which steers the institution’s general policy; expert committees, made up of volunteer professionals that advise on our various scopes of action ; and a team of staff
entrusted with making proposals and implementing the decisions of the Board of Directors.
Two types of control are in place:
- Internal controls: management, procedure application, accounts (performed by the Statutory Auditor), Remuneration Committee, Bounties Committee and Audit Committee
- External controls: the French Court of Accounts and the Controls Committee of the French charity commission (Charte du don en confiance)
