Just like any for-profit business, nonprofits can find
themselves under scrutiny for lapses in ethical decision making. And,
because charitable nonprofits are highly reliant on public trust and support to
legitimize and to advance their work, the effects of such a lapse can be
devastating and long lasting. When a nonprofit is accused of an ethical
breach, there is not just the likely loss of public trust and financial and
non-financial support, there is also the likelihood of diminished support for
its worthy constituents. Thankfully, the kinds of ethical dilemmas you
may face on a daily or weekly basis are not the sort of issues likely to make
the evening news. This makes them no less important, however.
Join us for a free, one-hour webinar on this topic for our nonprofit
members. During the webinar, we will consider: What is meant by
ethics and ethical behavior; what makes a 501(c)(3) nonprofit unique; some of
the resources available to help inform ethical behavior; some practices to
promote ethical behavior; a simple decision-making model, and a few challenging
scenarios you could encounter.
