Many nonprofit organizations are reeling from economic and social upheaval related to the Covid-19 pandemic. Fundraising professionals may face a myriad of challenges that raise ethical quandaries - from pressure to misrepresent their organization’s mission to protecting donor confidentiality while working from home. 

Emerging ethical issues can test even the most revered professional practice, including AFP's Code of Ethical Standards and Donor Bill of Rights. This interactive session will address these issues and other ethical dilemmas submitted by Chapter members based on their personal experiences, or from situations they have heard described by others in the field.

To share your questions and observations, please fill out this anonymous survey by November 12th.
