MeHAF’s Trustees, CAC, and staff are committed to best practices in nonprofit governance, accountability and transparency for all aspects of our work. Board meetings are open to the public and approved Board meeting minutes and other essential documents are posted on this website.
The foundation’s operations are guided by MeHAF’s Corporate By-Laws. Amendments to the by-laws must be reviewed by the Maine Attorney General.
Tax Return (IRS Form 990-PF)
MeHAF is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public benefit corporation, which is more commonly known as a “charitable corporation.” Each year we file a tax return with the Internal Revenue Service. MeHAF’s 990-PF forms are available on Guidestar’s national database of nonprofit organizations.
Board Conflict of Interest Policy
MeHAF Trustees are selected for service on the basis of their widely recognized professional expertise and experience, and deep personal commitment to promoting access and improving health in Maine. Given Maine’s health and human services environment and the fact that many organizations in the state rely on the knowledge and experience of a relatively small group of highly qualified individuals in the health care field, it is inevitable that Trustees will have current or prior affiliations with organizations seeking support from MeHAF. For this reason, the Board has adopted a comprehensive Conflict of Interest Policy to manage conflicts or appearance of conflicts to ensure that decisions are made in an open, unbiased, objective and transparent way.
