Our Commitment

The Ford Foundation is an organization with strong values of openness, collaboration, trust, equity, accountability and urgency. Our Code of Conduct contains general guidelines for conducting our mission with the highest standards of ethics. Our Respect in the Workplace policy ensures we will maintain a work environment in which all individuals are treated with respect and dignity. Our Whistleblower Policy establishes procedures for the receipt of complaints (including anonymous complaints) regarding accounting or financial matters, legal or regulatory requirements or foundation policies.

The Ford Foundation is committed to an environment where open, honest communications are the expectation, not the exception. We want you to feel comfortable in approaching your supervisor or management in instances where you believe violations of policies or standards have occurred.

In situations where you prefer to place an anonymous report in confidence, you are encouraged to use this hotline, hosted by a third party hotline provider, EthicsPoint. You are encouraged to submit reports relating to violations stated in our Code of Conduct, Respect in the Workplace and/or Whistleblower policies, as well as asking for guidance related to policies and procedure and providing positive suggestions and stories.

The information you provide will be sent to us by EthicsPoint on a totally confidential and anonymous basis if you should choose. You have our guarantee that your comments will be heard.

See the EthicsPoint FAQs for more information.
