2018 CONFLICT OF INTEREST STATEMENT and DISCLOSURE POLICY
Definition of conflict of interest: A conflict of interest arises when a person in a position of authority over the Organization may benefit financially from a decision he or she could make in that capacity, including indirect benefits such as to family members or businesses with which the person is closely associated. This policy is focused upon the material financial interest of, or benefit to, such persons.
To avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest which would tarnish the image of the Organization and undermine the public's trust in all United Way organizations, Foothills United Way (FHUW) representatives:
• Avoid any activity or outside interest, which conflicts or appears to conflict with the best interest of FHUW. Any involvement with a current or potential FHUW vendor, grantee, or competing organization may violate this code and should be discussed with the FHUW President, who, in turn, will bring such matters to the Audit Committee as appropriate.
* Refrain from participating in any policy or funding discussion (without prior approval of the Board Chair) or influencing any decision or other action of FHUW that could result in a direct or indirect benefit to his or her family or any organization with which he or she is substantially affiliated.
* As Staff and Board will disclose significant business and/or familial relationships with other members of the Staff or Board.
• Will recuse himself or herself in the case of a conflict of interest and will not vote on such matters.
