Ethical standards and principles are the foundation for maintaining public trust and every nonprofit depends on public trust for funding!  To ensure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public AFP has adopted a comprehensive Code of Ethical Principles and Standards of Professional Practice.

In these times of increased accountability, AFP membership and adherence to the AFP Code bolsters donor confidence!  When placed in a questionable ethical situation by an organization, foundation or even a donor, AFP members can refer tot he AFP Code to get direction and use the code to education others on ethical practices.

The AFP Code of Ethical Principles and Standards of Professional Practice provides members with a set of guidelines and standards based on generally accepted principles for professional fundraising practices.  AFP and its Ethics Committee enforce the Code, ensuring members are held to the standards set forth in its guidelines.

What would you do if - -

  • A donor wants to make a personal gift to you

  • The board wants to compensate you based on the amount of money you raise

  • Your annual solicitation said the funds would help XXX and you find out the money is being used for YYY.

  • The board president wants a list of donors and plans to contact those donors for a non-mission related purpose

  • Your new employer knows that you had a great relationship with a donor A when you worked for your old organization and suggests that you contact the donor to ask for a gift to your new organization

  • Your organization is things about doing something that is questionable or illegal
