Charitable organizations rely on the public trust to do their work. That is why it is so important that nonprofits continuously earn the public's trust through their commitment to ethical principles. If only one donor loses confidence because the nonprofit behaves unethically, that's one too many. Nonproift organizations are "public benefit" corporations; the purpose of their existence is to benefit the public as opposed to the private interest of their board members, staff or even of individual donors. The mission of a charitable organization expresses the particular way that the organization will fulfill its public benefit purpose. Fittingly, board members are often referred to as "trustees," which reinforces the concept that the assets of a nonprofit are entrusted to the oversight of its board members who have a legal duty to ensure that the nonprofit uses those assets to fulfill its public benefit mission. The Council of Nonprofits states: "It is one thing to exist for the benefit of the public; it is another to earn the public's trust through ethical leadership and responsible practices.
Philanthropy Management works with organizations providing services which ensure their success through ethical principles and standards.
