Sticky Situations: Ethics Roundtable


Program Description:
Ethical decision making in nonprofit fundraising can feel nebulous at times. While overtly unethical actions may be easy to spot, many of us find ourselves working within gray areas. The reality is that ethical fundraising is not defined by a singular action but rather represents a culmination of decisions that directly reflect the organizational culture. Whether you are in your first fundraising position or a seasoned professional, integrating ethical decision making into your work is always important.

Join us for an interactive, round-table discussion of ethical dilemmas commonly faced by fundraising professionals. Led by experienced fundraiser Cheryl Cobbs, this discussion will address 5 ethical scenarios, including the recommended resolution as provided by AFP International.
