Bishopsgate Institute is governed by a Board of Trustees which meets at least four times a year.
The Board consists of no more than fifteen trustees, all of whom are unpaid volunteers. These include two ex-officio trustees (the Alderman for the Ward of St Botolph and the Rector of St Botolph’s Church, Bishopsgate), two trustees appointed by the Parochial Church Council of St Botolph’s and 11 co-opted trustees.
Co-opted trustees are selected by the trustees as a whole through a process which ensures that the board has the skills which it needs to carry out its obligations. There are also additional consultants and advisors who attend committee meetings.

The Board of Trustees are collectively responsible for setting the strategic direction and values of the Institute and ensuring that it is performing well and carrying out its charitable objectives. The Board reviews the activities of the Institute through five principal committees. These are made up of:
Finance & General Purposes (meets three times a year)
- Public Programmes (meets three times a year)
- Human Resources (meets when required)
- Eleemosynary (responsible for grants and pensions, meets once a year)
