National Network of Consultants to Grantmakers Code of Ethical Conduct

June 20, 2006

The National Network of Consultants to Grantmakers (NNCG) is part think-tank and part service organization. It is a learning community, a forum for discussion among thoughtful peers and professionals in the consulting field. Its mission is:To increase the quality, effectiveness, and capacity of grantmakers by mobilizing and strengthening the work of knowledgeable, ethical, and experienced consultants.While the majority of NNCG's goals derive from an express or implied recognition of the critical importance of ethics to the field, two goals stand out:Define values and ethical behavior as well as standards and best practices in consulting, and actively promote their adoption in order to increase the quality and impact of consultants' work for their clients.Expand awareness of and commitment to effective stewardship principles and methods in philanthropy.A Code of Ethics is, at a minimum, a set of basic principles to guide the behavior of its members. But just as it can set forth minimum thresholds of acceptable behavior, it can also -- and arguably must -- establish a higher bar. While the Code that follows is more the former than the latter, it is firmly rooted in the belief that at our best we consultants have accepted a sacred trust. The purpose of the Code is to help Network members maintain their professionalism and adhere to high ethical standards in the conduct of providing services to clients and in their dealings with their colleagues and the public. We recognize that the individual judgment of member consultants will always be required in the interpretation and application of such principles.
