Staff Travel and Expense Policy
The foundation’s Staff Travel and Expense Policy requires employees to steward our resources by following guidelines on making and reporting travel and other business-related expenses.
The purpose of this policy is threefold:
*To ensure our policies support employees in performing at their best in the office and while traveling on business.
*To mitigate the impacts of travel on our employees, and support them in integrating and managing their work and personal live.
*To ensure that our policies are appropriate relative to the sectors in which we work, including grantees, other foundations, and nonprofit organizations.
The foundation assumes that employees will use their best judgment when traveling or spending money in support of foundation-related business.
This policy provides specific guidelines on employees’ reporting responsibilities, air and ground travel, lodging, meals, tipping, visas and passports, combining business and personal travel, non-reimbursable expenses, insurance, and other business-related expenses, such as team building and employee recognition.
