Nonprofit Ethics Scenarios

All of the nonprofit ethics scenarios are from the book, "Ethics in Nonprofit Organizations: Theory and Practice." All of these scenarios are fictional, although some are based on actual cases that the author experienced either firsthand or secondhand. Many that have their origins in actual events have been exaggerated beyond recognition. All have been disguised beyond recognition. Almost all of these scenarios, whether they occurred or not, could have plausibly occurred in a nonprofit organization. The author believes that a discussion of these scenarios will improve the ability of our future nonprofit leadership to navigate through many common ethical challenges they could face in the future.
