Board and Officers

NDPI is governed by its seven-member Board of Directors. The foundation ensures its independence as a charitable institution by allocating four of its seven seats to experienced non-Chevron professionals. The remaining three Board seats are filled by Chevron employees with a passion for the foundation's mission.

The NDPI Board of Directors has three main responsibilities:
  • Strategic decision-making on foundation programs, operation, and direction
  • Approval of overall funding allocations and individual program funding
  • Approval of new projects and donor/partner alliances
