Conflict of Interest and Confidentiality Policy
Members of Impact 100 Richmond (“Impact 100”) must insure that no personal or professional self interest interferes with their volunteer work on behalf of Impact 100. A conflict of interest can arise when a member, or someone in a member’s family, could personally gain, either financially or professionally, from an action taken by Impact 100. For example, if an Impact 100 member or family member could receive a job, a business contract, or other personal benefits as a result of the Impact 100 grant being awarded to a certain nonprofit organization, then that member has a conflict of interest.
It is important to realize that simply serving on the board of a nonprofit that has applied for a grant from Impact 100 does not create a conflict of interest. However, disclosure of board positions and advisory positions is necessary to evaluate whether a conflict of interest exists. It is only in the situation in which a member, or her relative, would personally gain from the grant being given to the nonprofit organization that a conflict arises.
With five focus area committees available for member participation, it is recommended that members select committee participation that will avoid a conflict of interest. In the event a member has a conflict of interest or perceived conflict of interest, she will advise her Committee Chair. At the discretion of the Committee Chair, the Member may be excused from discussion on the matter. In all circumstances, the member shall recuse herself from committee level vote related to that conflict. The member may participate in the annual balloting process of all members to determine the year’s final grantee(s).Each Impact 100 member will not disclose confidential information acquired in connection with the volunteer work she does on behalf of Impact 100. This includes information gained through site visits and/or grant applications
