LITTLE TOKYO : Fund-Raising Ethics Is Workshop Topic


A daylong workshop will seek to help staff members and volunteers address the issue of ethics in the nonprofit sector.

“Are We Still the Good Guys? Ethics and the Nonprofit Sector” will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 24 at the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center, 244 S. San Pedro St.

Panelists will use hypothetical situations and case studies to discuss ethical issues relating to nonprofit management, including AIDS reporting, instances when a charity might have to turn down a large cash gift, and other situations that deal with fund raising and volunteers.


Panelists will include Linda Griego of Rebuild L.A.; Deborah Ching, executive director of the Chinatown Service Center; Virgil Roberts, a board member of the California Community Foundation, and Father Gregory Boyle of Dolores Mission.

The workshop fee is $35, which includes a box lunch and workshop materials.

The event is sponsored by the California Community Foundation and the local chapter of the National Society of Fundraising Executives.
