Code of Ethics

Third Sector Associates adheres to the Code of Ethical Principles and Standards of Professional Practice as set forth by the Grant Professionals Association (GPA). These codes govern compensation and provide a code of conduct for grant writing professionals. This being the case, Third Sector Associates does not work on a commission or contingency basis since grant preparation fees cannot be paid from most grant sources.
