Those in positions of responsibility and authority in the governance structure of a nonprofit — both volunteers who serve without compensation and employed staff — have a fiduciary duty to the organization, including duties of care, loyalty and obedience. In simple terms, this means that they are required to act reasonably, prudently and in the best interests of the organization, to avoid negligence or fraud, and to avoid conflicts of interest.
