AFP will be designating October—the beginning of the fourth quarter of the year, often known as the giving season—to emphasize ethics and AFP’s Code of Ethics.
“We have such an amazing benefit: our Code of Ethics,” said Geiger. “But our challenge is that no one knows about it. But we’re going to change that. We’re going to put an emphasis on ethics in a way that’s never been done before.”
In October, AFP will be providing articles, webinars, and activities related to ethics every day of the month. The association will be encouraging members to engage their board, donors and volunteers about Ethics Month, and to share key messages throughout the month to colleagues and others.
Ethics is critical all the time, every single day,” said Geiger during the presentation. “But with the beginning of the giving season in October, it’s only right that we emphasize ethics at that time of the year.”
AFP will have multiple communications about Ethics Month throughout 2019 leading up to October. The AFP Ethics Committee is taking the lead on developing messages and activities, and members will hear more in the near future.
