Core Values

Our core values are the foundation for achieving the chapter's mission and are made visible by the daily interactions of development professionals.


We act ethically, communicate honestly, and behave responsibly to build and maintain the trust of donors and the community.


We believe that compassion entails not only the desire to alleviate suffering, but the passion and commitment to become involved and make a difference.

Service to Others
