Our Policies

Code of Conduct

The Foundation expects its staff and directors to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with the highest ethical standards. The Foundation's policies set forth expected standards and the procedures necessary to comply with those standards.  The Foundation's Code of Conduct, which emphasizes a number of different policies, is set forth below.  No policy can address every conceivable ethical situation.  Ultimately, therefore, the Foundation relies on the good judgment, integrity, and honesty of its staff and directors to ensure it addresses all situations in an ethical and legal fashion and in compliance with the applicable policy.
