Ethics Commission pulls opinion over nonprofit, business concerns

Printer-friendly version

Representatives of nonprofits who spoke before the Ethics Commission Wednesday morning said many of their chief donors had cut off funds over concerns about the principal definition. Many also noted that public officials serve on their boards.

“The big issue, and it’s already begun, is the for-profit companies and our for-profit partners are not contributing,” said Shannon Ammons, director of the Alabama Association of Nonprofits. “There’s a fear that, ‘Are they defined as a principal?’ If they are, are they trying to buy influence through a nonprofit donation?”
