Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative
The bulk of the Daniels Fund's ethics grantmaking relates to the programs listed above. On a very limited basis, we provide funding for additional ethics programs that complement the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative. If you are interested in discussing an ethics grant, please contact bo Peretto at
What principle-based ethics means to the Daniels Fund
The Ethics Initiative and each of its components extend beyond philosophy and theory to real world, practical application of ethical principles as a framework for personal and organizational decision-making.
We believe ethics education must convey that principles are constant foundations – not relative to a specific situation – and that doing what is right prevails over self-interest when the two may appear to be in conflict.
The Daniels Fund and our Collegiate Program partner schools established these straightforward and understandable principles that form the foundation of all activities of the Ethics Initiative.
