VALUES PROMOTED BY THE ASSOCIATION OF FUNDRAISING PROFESSIONALS
The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) serves the public trust by promoting ethical and effective fundraising. AFP members are guided in their ethical decision-making by the AFP Code of Ethical Principles and Standards, which is grounded in a set of values that fundraisers aspire to honor in their lives and work. When these values are evident in our fundraising practice, we believe that our work leads to integrity in our personal, professional, organizational and public lives.
An ethical fundraiser aspires to:
Observe and adhere to the AFP Code and all relevant laws and regulations; Build personal confidence and public support by being trustworthy in all circumstances; Practice honesty in relationships; Be accountable for professional, organizational and public behavior; Be transparent and forthcoming in all dealings; and, Be courageous in serving the public trust.
In addition to the Code of Ethics, your local chapter has adopted policies that help guide our members in their professional development and affiliation with the Great Smoky Mountain chapter of AFP. To view those policies please click here.
