Executive and Governance
The Executive and Governance committee is comprised of the Co-Presidents, the Treasurer, and others selected by the board for specific expertise. The committee is charged with acting in place of the Board between Board meetings when required. The committee is responsible for overseeing strategic planning and mission and coordination of committee efforts. The committee is also responsible for seeing that RCSF runs smoothly and ethically, in accordance with the bylaws and the relevant state and federal laws governing nonprofit organizations. The committee reviews board meeting agendas, and manages annual filings and insurance coverage. The committee is also developing a number of policies to serve and guide our growing organization, including policies for investment, expense reimbursement, and gift acceptance.
Finance and Development
The Finance and Development committees are responsible for managing RCSF finances, including RCSF endowment investments, through short and long-term financial management. These committees also provide advising to RCS management for major student responsibilities, including budgeting and tour planning.
The Finance and Development committees are also responsible for overseeing all elements of RCSF’s fundraising endeavors. This includes all components of annual fundraising, such as appeals, phonathons, and targeted fundraising drives, along with stewardship of planned giving in retirement and in trusts and wills. These committees also acknowledge gifts and collaborate with other committees for donor engagement and cultivation.
Alumnae Affairs and Nominating
The Alumnae Affairs and Nominating committee is responsible for building connections within the alumnae community through events and special projects that maintain the rich traditions of the Radcliffe Choral Society.
The committee also recruits alumnae to serve on the RCSF Board of Directors and advises the Board on selections for Directors, Officers, and committee chairs. The committee also facilitates ways in which the RCSF Board and the broader alumnae community can support the students. The committee promotes student-alumnae interaction.
The Communications committee is responsible for coordinating alumnae and community outreach. It organizes and produces paper and electronic communication between current students, the Foundation board members and committees, and the greater Foundation, and maintains the RCSF website, social media pages, and alumnae records.
