What a waste of paper and time - Really?? Aug. 14 2013
By D. C. Dreger - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Who needs a diatribe on ethics? We all know what's right, don't we? We all know right from wrong, good from bad, clear pathways to doing the right thing. Let me suggest it's not that simple - or easy - to discern appropriate ethical behavior in a multitude of settings and situations.

Written under the editorship of Janice Gow Pettey, long-time chair and member of the AFP Ethics Committee, this book collects best practices written by leaders in the fundraising profession - Paul Pribbenow, Dianne Lister, Audrey Kintzi, Robert Fogal, Carleen Rhodes, Andrew Watt and others. Here's a sample from the chapter the Rhodes writes under a subheading titled "Ethics needs to be viewed as a bottom-line issue for nonprofits and foundations alike":

"Aspiring to ethical principles is not just the right thing to do, it is a business necessity...." She follows that challenge with ways in which organizations can actively practice ethical principles, educate board members and staff, and understand that we are part of a larger nonprofit world that includes global membership.

Appendices give a mother-lode of information and help place you and me in the context of a global expansion of fundraising and our need to be trustworthy, transparent and open in our deliberations, negotiations and decisions: all for the benefit of the people we serve.

A waste? No way!
