AATF is a not-for-profit, limited liability corporate entity. Its governance structure creates a clear separation between the responsibility for setting and monitoring strategy and the management of operations. A Board of Trustees runs the Foundation and has overall fiduciary responsibility for its activities. It also approves the work plan, budget and business processes; appoints and monitors the Executive Director; and sets delegated authorities for the Executive Director and AATF management. The Trustees are drawn from a range of backgrounds and institutions and serve in their personal capacities.
Management and staff are responsible for the day-to-day management of operations and project development.
