Ethics - Where does the buck stop?

Ethical fundraising is a core component of AFP but development professionals can sometimes find themselves in sticky, tricky situations when it comes to raising funds.  This session will focus on real life examples, how to handle them, and how to stay out of trouble.
Patton McDowell, President of PMA Consulting, LLC, will moderate this panel discussion and explore real life case studies that our panelists have encountered over their years in fundraising.  Panelists include: Dianne Chipps Bailey, Lead Attorney for the Nonprofit Organizations and Foundations practice group at Robinson Bradshaw , Beth Crigler, Senior Director of Leadership and Principal Gifts for the Novant Health Foundation, Beth Fischer Executive Director for University Development at UNC Charlotte, and Rex Otey, Senior Project Director with Convergent Nonprofit Solutions.

What's the Big IDEA?

The program will focus on the importance of IDEA (Diversity and Inclusion efforts to include Equity and Access) in terms of recruiting diverse candidates for Board Members and Staff as well as best practices for cultivating and stewarding supporters from diverse communities. We are thrilled to host this month's guest speaker, Birgit Smith Burton, the Executive Director of Foundation Relations at Georgia Tech, who recently led her team in efforts to raise $309 million towards the Institute's most successful $1.8B capital campaign. Please use this month's meeting to include Board Members, Executive Directors, and fellow fundraisers at your organization in this important conversation. We are hoping to provide information as well as IDEA-focused take-aways for attendees to start implementing immediately.
