Eye on Ethics

This is your local landing page for all things ethics! As members of AFP, we uphold AFP’s Code of Ethics and understand that these standards and principles are the foundation for maintaining public trust in our organizations and profession. 

As your local chapter, AFP-GLAC is here to provide guidance, support and to empower you in addressing any ethical dilemmas or concerns you may be experiencing.

What is an ethical dilemma? 

As fundraising professionals, we can experience ethical dilemmas relating to organization operations & fiscal management, donor-staff interactions, personnel management, conflicts of interest and much more. Did you experience an interaction or became aware of a process that you think is in violation of our ethical standards? Read the Ethics FAQ for information on the types of violations addressed and how to submit a complaint. Still unsure? Reach out to us and we can help guide or connect you with the appropriate resource.
