Introduction to the Nonprofit Ethics Education pages of The Online Nonprofit Information Center
Welcome to the Nonprofit Ethics pages of The Online Nonprofit Information Center! The purpose of these pages is to provide the best educational materials about nonprofit sector ethics for FREE online. As this site is developed, we will be providing original and previously published material in the form of books, articles and links to help students and practitioners understand the ethical implications of their decisions. Included in the Beta version of this site, launched January 1, 2014, is the full text of a newly published textbook (2014), "Ethics in Nonprofit Organizations: Theory and Practice." This book includes chapters on general ethics and nonprofit ethics, ethics-related case studies of involving fictional nonprofit organizations, and scores of hypothetical scenarios of ethics situations that could be faced by a typical nonprofit organization. Included are activities and discussion questions suitable for both students and practitioners. Many of the materials on this site have been used in courses for many years, and are based on previously published textbooks, including "The Nonprofit Handbook" (6th Edition), "The Nonprofit Management Casebook," and "Introduction to the Nonprofit Sector: A Practical Approach for the 21st Century" (3rd Edition).
