All charities and other non-profit organisations must adhere to the legal and regulatory requirements that apply to the work that they do. There is a responsibility on charity trustees, directors and board members to find out what laws and regulatory requirements apply to their organisation and to ensure that the organisation complies with them.
The Compliance Calendar is a useful addition to the board materials for a meeting to ensure that relevant actions are addressed by the Board. It can also assist with preparing the agenda for an upcoming meeting.
This Sample Compliance Calendar, suitable for small or all volunteer organisations, should be amended/tailored to reflect the specific compliance requirements of your own charity or non-profit.
