18 Nov Ethics: Grant Ethics for Consultants
Ethics: Grant Ethics for Consultants
Session 8 of the Ethics Series
While all nonprofit professionals have many ethical issues to consider as they conduct pre-award and post-award grant activities, grant consultants have additional areas of which to be mindful because they run their own businesses instead of being an employee of nonprofit. These areas include marketing, contracts, compensation, and writing for more than one client.
In this session, we’ll discuss how to ensure a vibrant consulting practice that does not cross the ethical lines drawn in all four of the most common codes of conduct followed by professional grant consultants.
What You’ll Learn:
- Best practices for ethical marketing
- Best practices for communication to avoid ethical issues before work begins
- Best practices for compensation
- What the codes do and don’t say about working for more than one client

Ethics Training Series
So often ethics about grants are focused on the mismanagement of grant funding which gets flashy headlines in the news. But ethics are important throughout the full grant lifecycle from research to reporting. Each training will present information tied to grant and development codes of conduct, standard grant best practices, and case studies and will facilitate a question and answer session for each core topic.
