ORGANISATION AND FUNDING
The IMMF Thailand is comprised of a chairman, 2 co-presidents, an executive board of 8 members, and 4 Thai directors. Among the 8 are working journalists but all give their time voluntarily. Our 14 trustees are drawn from the world of business, journalism and academia in Australia, Laos, Thailand, the United States and Western Europe.
IMMF Thailand is affiliated with IMMF UK.
An executive director, assisted by a project director is responsible for running the organisation, implementing the training courses and seeking donor support. A full-time book keeper and administrative assistant help carried out these duties. Accounting services are provided by a professional and IMMF accounts are annually audited by KPMG in Bangkok. The foundation provides full accounting of all grant funds as well as substantive evaluation of what has been accomplished.
Our financial support and other forms of assistance have come from private organisations, government agencies and individuals from Australia, Cambodia, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Japan, Laos, Norway, Sweden, Thailand, United Kingdom, Vietnam and the United States. All supporters have expressed satisfaction with course results and the handling of finances.
The IMMF has been approved for 501C-3 funding for U.S. donors through the Give2Asia programme of the Asia Foundation.
