Accepting Gifts From Pablo Escobar and Other Ethical Dilemmas Faced By Fundraisers

Robbe A. Healey, MBA, NHA, ACFRE


Charity scandals make sensational headlines, and a misstep in our community – or on the other side of the globe – can cast a shadow on the entire sector. The damaging impact to nonprofits and our profession can endure for decades.


This session, recommended by Melissa Simon, AFP-GHC Board President and Sara Wise, President-Elect,  will use humor to challenge you to think critically about incorporating ethics, ethical practice, and ethical culture into your daily work… as a personal and organizational glide path to excellence.  


“The Code of Ethics sometimes seems like this black-and-white document sent from on high. But, the reality is, it’s a living document that represents just the floor for ethical behavior. The key is for us to slow down and think through the sort of lives we want to live, our moral values, the ethical situation we face. And then to encourage discussion about our professional moral lives.” – Dr. Paul Pribbenow
