Ethics is essential in any industry, but nonprofit organizations must set higher standards than private companies. Nonprofits must be accountable to their constituents. These are not simply the Board and client base. In order to run programming, nonprofits need funding, which may come from a variety of revenue streams.
The focus of my services relates to current and prospective donors and including (but not limited to) corporations, foundations, service organizations, and individuals. When I consider ethics, all organizational advancement efforts must develop and implement (an) effective communication, fundraising and/or marketing plan(s), supported by leadership, with ethical consideration every step of the way.
