Governance and Fiscal Transparency

As you consider your association with and support of IHE, please know that we are proud of the way our organization is governed and of our long history of fiscal responsibility and transparency. We are recipients of Guidestar’s 2021 Platinum Seal of Transparency and have received Top-rated Nonprofit status by Great Nonprofits, which also named us a Top Influential Race Nonprofit.

Below you’ll find links to select documents related to governance and fiscal transparency as well as statements regarding our process for determining compensation for key leadership positions. 


Fiscal Transparency

  • Process for determining CEO compensation: For many years, IHE’s co-founder and president was an unpaid, but full-time volunteer providing vision for IHE and also writing, speaking, strategic planning, and fundraising on behalf of our organization. When she took over executive director responsibilities in 2018 in addition to her previous responsibilities, and moved to an ex officio capacity on the board of directors, the board felt it was important to compensate her. She accepted a modest compensation, which she continues to receive today. 
  • Compensation of Board members: None of our Board members are compensated. They are all passionate about our efforts to change the world through making the Solutionary Framework foundational to schools and institutions, and by increasing the number and diversity of people trained in the field of humane education. Our Board members give generously of their time and expertise, many providing pro-bono services based on their specific areas of expertise.
