Risk Management Solution for Charities

NPO RiskMgmt Charities Banner


Key findings of the Charity Council Risk Management Survey 2017

  • 50.9% of respondents do not have a formal approach to managing risk, or are unsure if a policy exists.
  • 59.4% of respondents stated that they either do not understand or are unsure of the benefits of proper risk management.
  • The survey discovered that respondents were not sure who is responsible for risk management – the Board, CEO or CFO, Audit Committee, Internal Audit, or Board Risk Committee.
  • Charities placed the most importance on their finances and viewed IT risks as the least important. This is despite them operating in an increasingly digital world.

  • Develop Risk Management Manual that includes risk strategy, governance structure, policy, process and templates to institutionalise risk management in key decision-making process and to enable continuous reporting & monitoring
  • Establish roles and responsibilities for Board, Committee, Management, Risk Function, and Internal Auditor
  • Establish risk appetite statements, risk tolerance limits as well as set key risk indicators for effective monitoring
