Duties of Directors of Non-Profit Corporations

Directors are subject to two primary obligations which are:

  • a duty of care
  • a duty of loyalty

The duty of care and the duty of loyalty are the common terms for the standards that guide all actions that a director of a non-profit corporation takes. The standards are not dissimilar from those applied to directors of business corporations.
The Duty of Care:
The duty of care requires a director to act in a reasonable and informed manner when participating in the Board's decisions and in its oversight of management. The duty of care requires that a director act in good faith. Elements of the duty of care:

  • attend meetings/participate
  • be informed
  • exercise independent judgment
  • rely on others only when appropriate

The Duty of Loyalty:
The duty of loyalty requires a director to act in the best interests of the corporation, rather than in the director's own interest or the interest of another organization or person. A director should not use a corporate position for individual advantage. Elements of the duty of loyalty:

  • avoid conflicts of interest
  • do not seize corporate opportunities
  • maintain confidentiality
