Good Governance

We know that  public trust is our greatest asset.  The IRS states:

“Just as there is no single model for a charity, there is no single model for good governance. Instead, there are practices charities should consider when looking for an effective governance structure. The IRS promotes good governance practices to the tax-exempt community. A well-governed organization is more likely to comply with the tax laws.” 

The Wetland Project has an independent and knowledgeable Board of Directors in place to oversee the good governance policies and procedures that define our corporate culture.
