Ethics standards – Easy to say. Harder to practice.
30 November 2022 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm MST
Often, AFP ethics sessions and seminars focus on ethics as they relate to fundraising. Most of the 25 standards in the AFP Code of Ethical Standards focus on the practice of fundraising; the first 11 are devoted to public trust, transparency, and conflicts of interest; the next five are devoted to the solicitation and stewardship of philanthropic funds; the next four are devoted to the treatment of confidential and proprietary information, and the final five are devoted to compensation, bonuses, and finder fees.
This session is not about AFP’s 25 ethical standards. At least, not directly. Instead, we will be asking you to focus on the higher-level ethics from which AFP’s ethical standards stem from. We are asking you to focus on the ethical standards that not only make you an ethical fundraiser but also a principled human. Living an ethical life is something to which we all likely aspire. Easy to say. Harder to practice.
Ethics is not owned by any one sector but as leaders, and professional fundraisers are leaders, in the non-profit sector, our ethics need to be informed by more than just our professional ethical code. The sector’s largest ethical breaches in recent years have, arguably, not been related to fundraising. At least not directly.
Join fundraising leader, Vincent Duckworth, in a fun, interactive, and engaging session where we will explore some of the most recent high-profile ethical issues that also intersect with us as fundraisers.
This event will be held at the Drop In Centre’s Greenview Rise facility, located at 4804 Edmonton Trail NE
