Donors and volunteers support charitable organizations like the AIDS Foundation of Chicago (AFC) because they trust the organizations to carry out their missions, to be good stewards of their resources, and to uphold rigorous standards of conduct. Not-for-profit organizations must earn this trust every day and in every possible way.
To demonstrate its ongoing commitment to the core values of integrity, honesty, fairness, openness, respect, and responsibility, AFC has formally adopted a Statement of Values and Code of Ethics with which all of our board members, staff, and volunteers. In addition, the existence of the Statement of Values and Code of Ethics has been publicly communicated (i.e., on AFC’s website) and shared with key stakeholders (i.e., potential grant recipients).
If you, the reader, have witnessed what you believe to be non-compliance, or feel that you might not be in compliance with AFC’s Statement of Values and Code of Ethics, please e-mail AFC at
and describe your concern. You will be contacted in a timely manner. Alternatively, please contact AFC’s Executive Director and/or the Board President directly to raise potential issues.
