Earning and maintaining the trust and confidence of donors and stakeholders is critical to nonprofit success.
As nonprofit professionals and executive leaders, we must abide by the highest ethical practices. Chief among these practices include financial transparency, honoring the donor’s intent, following gift acknowledgement and reporting regulations, and accurate, honest communications – to name just a few.
Also imperative, is creating a code of ethics for your organization that informs fundraising practices and board room decisions. Attendees of this two-hour workshop with nonprofit legal expert, Roy Schneider will explore these and other ethical practices inherent to board governance and fundraising.

Why this workshop is important to attend...
It's important to understand and appreciate the ethical obligations staff and board members need to have toward their nonprofit and the public, and to understand the process of designing a Code of Ethics, particularly in the area of fundraising for your organization.
Maintaining high ethical standards will help assure that an organization complies with the legal standards required to be a nonprofit, particularly a charity, and retain donor trust.
