The main task entrusted to the members of the Board of Trustees is that of applying the existing criteria for the selection of projects and aid programs, setting out a proper planning and monitoring of activities and performing an effective control on the use of funds. All posts are unremunerated.

This Committee performs quite a rigorous monitoring of the Foundation’s progress, controls the evolution of financial statements and analyzes the records of aid requested and compliance commitments in force. It meets at least ten times a year and whenever so required by the matters to be dealt with. The Commission prepares those reports which are later submitted to the decision of the Board of Trustees.
