One of the most important aspects of the Foundation is to act as a good steward of the resources our supporters have graciously donated. With careful oversight of our investment program to strict monitoring of our annual budget, the Foundation ensures proper allocation of all resources.
The Stewardship Committee of the Board of Directors is specifically charged with oversight of all Foundation grants and with maintaining high standards of accountability to donors. Each year the Stewardship Committee:
- Carefully reviews requests for grant and scholarship support, and makes funding recommendations to the Board of Directors.
- Monitors grants actually made, and evaluates the impact of grants.
- Gives supporters the opportunity to meet the recipients of scholarship and program grants.
- Provides program and financial reports to supporters.
The Stewardship Committee, along with every member of the Foundation, works to make the most of every dollar and to insures that each grant makes a positive and long-lasting impact on GCC and the students.
The Foundation observes the highest standards of ethical practice in fund raising programs and the management of assets by fully subscribing to the Association of Fund Raising Professionals Code of Ethics and the American Association of Fund Raising Counsel's Donor Bill of Rights.
