who can be a charity trustee

Becoming a trustee involves meeting certain eligibility criteria

To be eligible to serve as a trustee, you must be:

  • at least 18 years old

  • a resident of the country in which the charity is registered

  • have a good moral character

You may also be disqualified from serving as a trustee if you have been convicted of a serious criminal offence, are currently under investigation for a serious criminal offence, have been adjudicated as mentally incompetent, or are currently in bankruptcy.

If you are unsure whether you are eligible to serve as a trustee, contact the charity directly to inquire about their specific eligibility requirements.
