GET INVOLVED IN HELPING CATS! Over the years since founding in 2014, Cat Beach has developed a number of programs. Every program or project would be enhanced by having more people to participate. Committees can help in many ways:

BOARD DUTIES Organising meetings, reports, investigating legal issues and growth potentials.

FUNDRAISING  Through outreach online and in person, raise the funds crucial to maintain and improve the Sanctuary and its activities. Events like dinners, parties, marathons, etc. Crowdfunding and internet outreach. PopUp shops, charity sales and much more possible.

OPERATION SNIPSNIP Discount Spay/Neuter Surgeries – a partnership with Windsor Animal Hospital. Any rescued cat – whether from the streets or brought into a home as a pet – can be sterilized under this program at a considerable discount. No more unwanted kittens!

VOLUNTEERING FOR CAT BEACH  Groups and individual volunteers help “hands on” with the daily cleaning and care of the 300+/- cats and kittens at the Sanctuary.

Online Virtual Volunteers reach out on social media to share educational, promotional, fundraising and other information.

Just as for any corporation, the board of directors of a nonprofit has three primary legal duties known as the “duty of care,” “duty of loyalty,” and “duty of obedience.”

  1. Duty of Care: Take care of the nonprofit by ensuring prudent use of all assets, including facility, people, and good will;
  2. Duty of Loyalty: Ensure that the nonprofit’s activities and transactions are, first and foremost, advancing its mission; Recognize and disclose conflicts of interest; Make decisions that are in the best interest of the nonprofit corporation; not in the best interest of the individual board member (or any other individual or for-profit entity).
  3. Duty of Obedience: Ensure that the nonprofit obeys applicable laws and regulations; follows its own bylaws; and that the nonprofit adheres to its stated corporate purposes/mission.

However, a board of directors does not exist solely to fulfill legal duties and serve as a fiduciary of the organization’s assets. Board members also play very significant roles providing guidance to nonprofits by contributing to the organization’s culture, strategic focus, effectiveness, and financial sustainability, as well as serving as ambassadors and advocates. Beyond fulfilling legal duties, board and committee members can be important resources for the organization in multiple ways. Responsibilities of a Board Member
