Description

Ethics in Action: Exploring your Professional Fundraising Practice

It takes courage to stand up for your principles. Every day professional, ethical fundraisers are demonstrating their courage by living their values and representing the missions of their philanthropic organizations. While many discussions of ethics in fundraising arise when something “goes wrong”, we will take a step back in this workshop to consider a broader framework of ethical practice in fundraising and philanthropy.

Come join your professional colleagues in this interactive workshop to strengthen your ethical practice.

We will consider questions such as:

  • The role of ethics in fundraising and your role in building a culture of ethics in your organization.

  • How can an ethical practice help you navigate our increasingly connected world while respecting the need for accountability and transparency with donors and others?

Using case studies and a model for ethical decision making we will discuss some of the challenging questions professional fundraisers are dealing with every day.
