December Meeting: America’s Worst Charities? Not On My Watch

Presented by: Sara Leonard, MBA, CFRE, Consultant | Trainer | Coach Sara Leonard Group

Program Info: Unethical behaviors makes sensational headlines like the Tampa Bay Times/CNN 100 Worst Charities list. That behavior can also make things challenging for everyone, even those of us who do things the right way. The reality is that without public trust, fundraising cannot happen. Adherence to the AFP Code of Ethical Prinicples and Standards makes us more effective in our jobs. CEO's, board members and fundraisers can benefit from this session's case analysis approach that wil demonstrate the practical applications of the AFP Code and the Donor Bill of Rights.
