Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?

Program: The Kris Kelly Foundation Traps Feral Cats in West L.A. (GuideStar Exchange,
The GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more.
October 2013)

Budget:
$200
Category:
Animal-Related
Population Served:
General Public/Unspecified

Program Description:

The Kris Kelly Foundation trapped neutered/spayed a small colony of cats that live in West Los Angeles. There were 3 kittens that got homes but the others had to remain in the colony. There was one cat that was the Mama that could not be caught with a regular trap. Fix Nation let them borrow what is called a drop trap (as you can see in the pictures below). Mama was caught and will be spayed at Fix Nation tomorrow morning and returned back to the colony. Please remember to learn about trap neuter release also dubbed TNR and help any stray cat in your neighborhood get sterilized before it gets out of control. The poor kittys live a hard life on the streets and we at The Kris Kelly Foundation want to prevent future kittys from that life. So please get involved in your neighborhoods and save a life. Remember to always spay and neuter your pets!

Program Long-Term Success:

To date all of the cats/kittens remain in their forever homes!  This is truly a success story for each of them.

Program Short-Term Success:

In the short term, we had plenty of expenses, much over budget.  Medical for the most part, but we managed.

Program Success Monitored by:

The Kris Kelly Foundation

Program Success Examples:

One of the kittens was placed with our treasurer, Leigh Ann Conway.  She has raised the little one to be a happy, healthy part of her family of animals and children.  The kitty continues to be loved and comforted by being part of a family.  Even though this kitten was semi-feral, she thrives in a home with other cats and a dog.  We believe this is testament to the notion that ALL animals understand compassion, affection, security and love.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

The Kris Kelly Foundation has saved a vast number of dogs, cats, rabbits, even guinea pigs in the years since our inception.  This past year the Kris Kelly Foundation rescued approximately 1000 animals in need.   An example of our work is a current situation involving almost 100 cats/kittens.  A woman passed away leaving almost 100 cats in need of homes.  Our Foundation took in ALL of the cats and provided them with much needed medical care, dental care, spay/neuter, microchipping, etc.  Everything they needed to be happy, healthy members of a family.  Almost every cat has been placed in a permanent home.  This is just one example of the extreme cases that our Foundation has taken on.    One of our primary goals is to educate the public about animal welfare, and the joys and benefits of adoption.  We work with children, teaching them to interact with animals and the proper care and handling of animals.  We work with senior citizens, bringing the joy of having animals in their lives to them.  A primary relationship we have developed is with Sunrise Senior Center in Beverly Hills, California.  We bring dogs and cats in for visits and adoption events.  The happiness and cheer these animals bring is amazing to watch.  This is a relationship our Foundation truly cherishes.
