Starting a Nonprofit

Nonprofit organizations are uniquely affected by the public’s perception of their ethical (or not-so-ethical) behavior. For organizations that rely on public funds for financial support, it is particularly important to maintain strong ethical guidelines and promote a culture of reporting ethical violations should they occur. Because individual employees’ abilities for moral decision making and awareness may differ, an organizational structure for ethics reporting can assist in implementing certain norms and expectations. This resource explains the need for whistleblowers and includes a sample policy.
