Ethics Resources

AFP Minnesota’s core purpose is to advance ethical and effective fundraising. We do this by promoting consistent and high standards to ensure donor trust and guard against abuses that can occur in the fundraising process.

The Code of Ethical Principles and Standards of Professional Practice (known as the “Code”) provides concrete guidelines designed for both individual fundraising professionals and for philanthropic organizations. All AFP Minnesota members must sign and live by the Code.

The enforcement process managed by the AFP Ethics Committee.

The Donor Bill of Rights outlines what donors have the right to expect from charitable organizations to which they contribute. AFP Minnesota is proud to have been instrumental in creating and maintaining this important resource.

You can find more ethics resources, emerging issues, and additional language versions of the Code and the Donor Bill of Rights at AFP International.
