Ethical Fundraising: Establishing a Foundation for Effective Philanthropic Development


Pleasant Hill - Main University Campus 100 Ellinwood Way
Pleasant Hill, CA 94523-4817

July 19, 2018 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM

If a decision your organization makes today ends up in the newspaper tomorrow, how would you feel about it? If the thought makes you a little apprehensive, take a deep breath! This doesn’t mean your organization is necessarily at-risk or up to no good. What it could mean, however, is that it could use a stronger or more explicit ethical framework that is prominent both internally and externally.

“Board members and executive leaders must remain vigilant in their efforts to minimize the organization’s vulnerability from any ethical improprieties,” says Solomon Belette, Director of the Sanford Institute of Philanthropy at John F. Kennedy University. In this important meeting of the Lunch and Learn series, Chelsea Souza, President of the fundraising counsel Essex and Drake, will discuss what it looks like to install practical, transparent ethical guidelines to strengthen decision-making while fortifying donor confidence and trust.

Souza will offer techniques for establishing a functional ethical framework geared toward helping organizations stay true to their philanthropic roots at every step of the way. Join us to lunch, learn, and converse!

Lunch and Learn with the Sanford Institute of Philanthropy
The Sanford Institute of Philanthropy’s Lunch and Learn series at John F. Kennedy University invites you to come get on a first-name basis with your nonprofit peers while hearing from an expert on a pertinent issue in the field. A light lunch will also be provided!

Each installment of the Lunch and Learn series begins with a half hour of networking followed by an hour-long lecture-style presentation, and finally, Q&A. “The purpose of the series is to help address an issue that nonprofits are challenged with, including fundraising and other issues that have a bearing on overall organizational sustainability,” explains Solomon Belette, Director of the Sanford Institute of Philanthropy. “It’s also designed to create and build community among folks working in the social sector.”
