Patrons and Royal Visits

Charities often have patrons. Their role is, in the vast majority of cases, that of a “figurehead” or “flag bearer,” a leader whose example people are willing to follow and whose name can lend credibility and status to the organisation which, in turn, can increase the effectiveness of its fundraising, campaigning and public relations activities. Unlike trustees, patrons have no legal status or binding obligations. Neither do they have any responsibility for the management of the organisation or the manner in which funds are spent. (more…)
