Governance & Funding

CCHR is governed according to our bye-laws. We have a Board of Directors and a panel of Counsellors – successful and influential individuals who have a passion for human rights and support our work. CCHR is managed day-to-day by the Management Committee chaired by CCHR’s Executive Director.

The Management Committee has sought to create and nurture a lean efficient organisation in which middle management is limited in favour of increased responsibility and space for significant input from project leaders. CCHR’s success is rooted in the hard work of our excellent staff.

CCHR focuses on results to ensure that it employs management practices that optimize value for money and the prudent use of its human and financial resources, ensuring that the organization is run both effectively and efficiently - especially in relation to CCHR’s finance policy. We believe that incorporating a results based approach into the development of CCHR polices provides a sound underpinning to the implementation of our financial policy; and in program and project planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. Our approach ensures that we, CCHR, are held accountable to our donors, supporters, the people we work with daily and the public through the results that we deliver and impact we have. To this end CCHR has a policy of transparency and as such makes all its organizational and staff policies, and monthly fund balances, freely available online.

In this section of the website you will find information on CCHR’s monthly fund balance that covers income and expenditure by financial supporter and project, broken down into three classifications:

  • Human Resources
  • Support Cost and Administrative Support
  • Direct Project Cost

In additional to producing a monthly fund balance report CCHR signed a five-year agreement with auditors Fontamillas, Donasco & Co in 2009 for them to conduct an annual audit, and 3 special project audits per year.

CCHR encourages all organizations to be more transparent with their organization and staff policies, and information on their sources of funding together with expenditure.
