Afghan Jewish Foundation Inc DBA Afghan Jewish Heritage is nationally and internationally a known and respected public charity and nonprofit organization, with a long-standing reputation for lawful and ethical conduct. We believe the trust and confidence of our donors, volunteers and other supporters depend on our continuing to maintain the highest standards of ethical and lawful conduct. It is also AJH’s position that all of its leaders must comport themselves so that there is not even the appearance of conflict between personal interests and those of the organization. To ensure the continuity of its high standards of conduct, AJH desires to set forth the common understandings that must exist among its many lay leaders and other members of the community regarding its practices.
While this memorandum does not contain all of AJH’s rules and policies, it is intended to assist in understanding AJH’s policies and practices relating to business transactions, and its allocations processes, to clarify principles that must guide its conduct, and to provide guidance in resolving ethical and legal questions that might arise.
