Our Boards

Our Board Directors are responsible for directing iAID’s activities toward the achievement of our vision (of a world where technology and innovation are a natural part of any humanitarian effort, empowering both communities in need and those delivering the aid) and the fulfilment of our mission (to work responsibly and effectively to harness the power of innovation and technology to save lives, alleviate suffering and empower communities to live the kind of life they value).

We have Boards based in both Israel and the United States where we are registered as charitable organizations. In the United States, iAID has applied to be a tax exempt public charity under Code 501(c)(3) and we are awaiting confirmation of the application.

Our Boards are responsible for approving and monitoring strategic direction, operational plans and budgets, managing and mitigating business risk, monitoring the performance of senior management and the implementation and fulfilment of stakeholder expectations along with overall performance and compliance with relevant laws, codes of conduct and ethical standards.

The number of Board Directors we appoint is not fixed, but is determined by the Board when appointments are being considered to ensure that the necessary skills and experience are available. The Board only comprises non-executive directors who work on a voluntary basis. The range of skills and experience required by the Board covers strategic planning, governance, program development and monitoring, finance and audit, fundraising and human resources management functions.
