It is not required for every Foundation to have a guardian. A Guardian can also be a Councilor of a Foundation. The Guardian of a Foundation must ensure that the provisions as outline by the Foundation are complied with, and shall supervise the management and conduct of the Councilors. Where the Articles of Foundation provides for the appointment of a Guardian, such Guardian may be a natural or legal person. The Founder or a beneficiary of a foundation may be appointed as a guardian, but a sole Councilor may not act as guardian.
