AFP Ready Reference Series: Embracing and Living Ethics in Fundraising

We wrapped up our first-ever Ethics Awareness Month in October, but as we know, ethics is important all the time—and especially during the “giving season.” Our newest Ready Reference booklet, Embracing and Living Ethics in Fundraising, from Ethics Committee Chair Robbe Healey, MBA, NHA, ACFRE, covers the basics of ethics and includes important resources to use in your daily work.

Ethical Standards and Guidelines

The centerpiece of AFP’s ethical principles is 25 standards covering all aspects of fundraising and professional behavior. Our Deep Dives explore each of the standards and offers examples to help you navigate sticky situations.
 

The AFP Ethics Committee: Your Ethical Resource

While enforcement is critical, AFP focuses its ethical work on education, training and prevention. If you’re concerned about an ethical issue, dilemma and/or possible violation, you can contact the Ethics Committee to receive guidance.
 

More Resources on Fundraising Ethics

Have a question about ethics in fundraising? Check out our ethics FAQ page that covers ethical standards and how they apply to the work you’re doing. You can also find our position paper on percentage-based compensation, one of the most asked-about ethical issues.
