Fundraising, Ethics & Advertising: A Complicated Ménage-a-Trois

When it comes to marketing and fundraising, even the most successful nonprofits have to grapple with ethical conundrums in their advertising materials. In many cases the situation can go from, "What should we say in our next campaign?" to "What can we get away with saying?" In this talk, we'll take a look at some amusing and serious examples of the slippery slope that can occur when advertising, fundraising, and ethics come together. We'll also talk about specific steps you can take to make sure your fundraising efforts remain ethical and impactful.
