Thema 6 - Een persoonlijk verhaal, over taal en ethiek / A personal story, about language and ethics
The ethics of fundraising (EN)
After an introduction by Siep, the participants will discuss several real live cases about the ethics of fundraising. What questions do we have to ask funders? How can we do due diligence? Are there official rules and regulations on this subject? What should a policy look like? The purpose of the workshop is that the participants are up-to-date on this subject and should be able to imply a policy in their own organisation.
