Trustees

The governing body of World Jewish Relief is our Council of Management, run by our charity Trustees.

Each trustee has a 3 year + 3 year term of office. The Council delegates certain responsibilities to five Standing Committees namely: Finance, Allocations, Nominations, Philanthropy & Communications and Investment. We have an appointed President and 5 Life Vice-Presidents who hold significant non-constitutional positions. In addition a significant number of event organising committees play a key role in attracting support and funding to our work.
