An Open Letter to All CFRE's and Members of the AFP International:
Dear Professional Fundraisers,
I worked for one of your fellow members at a popular downtown San Jose museum. While employed there the director, a CFRE, refused to ensure that I got my lunch and rest breaks as required by law. She also did not pay me for those lunch and rest breaks, even though I worked straight through them.
She showed negligent and unethical management practices. Her behavior was detrimental to both me and the nonprofit organization she leads. I know that her actions run counter to the high ethical standards that the AFP International holds all members accountable to. This is why I am asking you to share your outrage with the AFP International. Please email the AFPI President, Andrew Watt, at firstname.lastname@example.org to let him know that any AFP member who has a wage theft and/or labor law violation judgement passed against them should face expulsion from the organization.
