A handbook for ethical reasoning and discussion. In her provocative new book, Dr. Fischer provides conceptual tools with which a nonprofit can thoroughly examine the ethics of how and from whom it seeks donations. With the book's Ethical Decision-Making Model, the author explains how fundraisers can use their basic value commitments to organizational mission, relationships, and integrity as day-to-day touchstones for making balanced, ethical fundraising decisions.
The book also examines day-to-day issues of fundraising: privacy and confidentiality, conflicts of interest such as finder's fees and commission-based pay; corporate philanthropy; and fostering cultural diversity. Each chapter concludes with discussion questions and additional case studies for readers' reflection and analysis.
