An understanding of and adherence to AFP ethics are an important part of AFP membership.  Ethical standards and principles are the foundation for maintaining public trust, and it is the goal of AFP to stay current and focused on emerging ethical issues.  Two important documents guide AFP members:

AFP Code of Ethical Principles and Standards

Donor Bill of Rights
