13 Oct Ethics: Organizational Capacity and Readiness Grant Ethics
Ethics: Organizational Capacity and Readiness Grant Ethics
Session 3 of the Ethics Series
Issues of ethics abound when grant professionals examine their organization’s readiness to apply for grants. Is the grant aligned to the organization’s strategic plan or is the organization chasing money and causing mission creep? Is the organization responding to the current community needs or just providing the same services they have always provided? Who in the organization must give the green light before a grant is submitted? Does the source of the grant funding align with the organization’s values or are they only looking at the amount of money that can be awarded? Is the funding opportunity really a good match for the organization or is the organization just sending out grant applications to anyone with funding? How ethical is it to use a relationship to get a grant from a foundation outside of its primary area?
Join us to see what ethical codes do and don’t say about each of these questions!
What you will learn:
- How to help your organization stay true to its ideals and values which searching for additional funding
- How to carefully ask hard ethical questions to organization leadership
- How to create a strong process which builds organizational capacity and doesn’t just eliminate options
