It is expected that all Fedcap Group employees will maintain the highest ethical standards while conducting organization business.

Fedcap Group’s Code of Ethics (“Code”) requires all Fedcap employees, board members and volunteers to observe high standards of business and personal ethics when performing their respective responsibilities and acting as agents of Fedcap. It is the responsibility of all employees, board members and volunteers to comply with the Code and to report violations or suspected violations in accordance with this policy.
The Whistleblower Policy has been developed to enable Fedcap Group employees, board members and volunteers to report any concerns they may have with regard to accounting and auditing matters, conflict of interest issues, disclosure of confidential information, donor stewardship, falsification of contracts, reports or records, or other serious issues and concerns regarding the operation or management of Fedcap. These reports may be made anonymously and without fear of retaliation. No one, who in good faith reports a violation of the Code shall suffer harassment, retaliation or adverse employment consequence. Any employee who retaliates against someone who has reported a violation in good faith is subject to discipline up to and including termination of employment.
This policy is intended to encourage and enable employees and others to raise serious concerns within the organization prior to seeking resolution outside the organization.
