MISSION AND STORY

The Here and Now Project's mission is to connect and empower the paralysis community in the Pacific Northwest.Through private support groups, community activities, and larger annual gatherings, we have built a strong fellowship of people who encourage and inspire each other to Do Life in the here and now.

Whether you’ve been in a chair since birth, or your loved one was hurt just six weeks ago, you are not alone. Whatever your situation, there are those among us who have been there too. You may not realize it, but your story has the power to change someone’s life. Reach out today.

INTERNAL  AND
EXTERNAL OVERSIGHT

The Directors who serve and oversee the Here & Now Project help to develop and advance the interests of our donors in ways that go beyond raising money.

 

Good governance is more than supporting the organization – it also means representing the community’s interests in what we do. Our Board of Directors have three fundamental legal obligations, or fiduciary duties, which apply to everything we do.

DUTY OF CARE

The amount of care an ordinarily prudent person would exercise in a like position and under similar circumstances. This describes the criteria our Directors must give to making decisions on behalf of the Here & Now Project.

DUTY OF LOYALTY

Keeping the interests of the Here & Now Project in mind always when making decisions on behalf of the organization.

DUTY OF OBEDIENCE

Requires board members to be faithful to our mission, consistent with our mission statement, Articles of Incorporation, bylaws, and tax-exempt documentation.
