Relief International is an alliance of European, UK and US not-for-profit organizations with a shared mission to partner with communities impacted by conflict, climate change and disaster to save lives, build greater resilience, and promote long-term health and well-being. Relief International is comprised of MRCA/Relief InternationalFrance (a French not-for-profit association loi 1901), Relief International-Europe (a Belgian international non-profit association), Relief International-UK (a registered charity in England & Wales), and Relief International, Inc. (a US 501(c)(3) tax exempt non-profit corporation).
The governing bodies (referred to herein as “boards”) of the Relief International alliance provide guidance, oversight and direction to our strategy and leadership initiatives. They act as leaders, advisors and key decision makers, who help shape our mission, values, and strategies to meet the complex needs of the communities we serve. Members and Directors actively participate in and drive the development of strategies, setting measurable goals that are technically and financially sound.
It is expected that new boards members will be appointed as: (a) members of MRCA/Relief International-France, (b) members of Relief International-Europe, (c) trustees of Relief International-UK and (d) directors of Relief International, Inc.
As Relief International sharpens its strategy, builds important new sources of unrestricted funds to buttress our work, and continues to grow its support from government, institutional and corporate donors in Europe and other countries outside of the US, we believe this is the right time to increase the geographic diversity of our governance and identify new members and directors from Europe and other presently underrepresented countries and regions.
This is an exciting time to join Relief International. The boards have recently appointed a new CEO and are actively engaged in an organization-wide strategic enhancement process that breathes new life, fresh thinking, and original ideas into how they achieve their mission. New boards members will play an important role in translating this newly sharpened strategy into action for excellence in fragile settings globally. New boards members will be joining a team of purpose- and values-driven leaders with unique and inspiring connections to RI’s mission, both personally and professionally.
