Fundraising ethics: jeopardy
Questions related to fundraising can fall into a grey area. How do you navigate to maintain ethical boundaries for yourself and donors? Join us for Jeopardy to discuss the ethical challenges advancement professionals face.
Christie Cotterill will lead the group through Ethics Jeopardy to introduce or refresh participants' knowledge of AFP's Code of Ethical Standards: https://afpglobal.org/ethics/code-ethics. Audience members will be split into teams to answer ethical questions related to many of the bullet points included in the Code of Ethics. The end of the session will feature time for questions from the audience about ethical challenges they have faced.
