Gifts That Have Gone Wrong
What are the ethical considerations when deciding to enter into a gift agreement with a donor? There have been numerous instances over the years where donors have become dissatisfied with how their gifts are being stewarded. As well, charities have at times found themselves in a bind over their association with some donors. In this presentation, Doug White will examine actual examples of where gifts have gone wrong and suggest steps charities can take to ensure that gifts are both established and stewarded properly.
