The Finance Committee of the board provides an annual operational budget to the board, monitors income and expenses during the fiscal year, provides financial reports to the board, sets, reviews and reports on investment strategies and policies for UWGLC's assets and recommends to the Board funds available for community impact.

The Audit Committee of the board selects, contracts with and oversees the performance of the annual independent financial audit, ensures that adequate internal controls are in place and ensures that a whistleblower policy has been established, communicated to staff and is functioning as intended.

The Ethics Committee of the board designates an ethics officer for UWGLC and establishes procedures for the board, staff and community members to submit ethical complaints and conduct evaluations of complaints in a confidential manner. The Ethics Committee also annually reviews all conflict of interest disclosures from board members and takes action necessary to preserve the integrity of UWGLC's governance.
