Beschreibung:

This penetrating analysis of a much-overlooked topic in the international literature presents the legal foundations, functional remit, and governance responsibilities of the bank foundations that play such a key role in the Italian not-for-profit sector.
The book investigates a topic that has received little attention by the international literature
Italian Bank Foundations and Governance.- Outlining Italian Bank Foundations.- Governance Roles and Responsibilities.- Composition of the Boards.- Governance and Strategic Planning.- Appendix.
Bank foundations serve an important purpose in the Italian nonprofit sector. This book presents the legal grounds, areas of intervention, and basic tools involved in the asset management and grant-making activities that such organizations undertake. A special emphasis focuses on the analyses of the organizational structure of bank foundations and the relevant aspects of governance, particularly with regard to the composition, roles, and responsibilities of bank foundation boards. The general reduction in the resources to which they have access requires a new strategy that clearly defines long-term goals and the necessary procedures to achieve them. The topic of strategic planning is therefore also central to this text, which examines its peculiarities, content and governing bodies. The analysis of some case studies provides a better understanding of the manner in which foundations interpret strategic planning and reveals strengths and weaknesses that demand careful attention.
