The Epilepsy Foundation in Kansas City has filed suit against its former executive director for allegedly stealing more than $80,000. According to The Kansas City Star, Sean Taylor was executive director for less than 2 years, yet he allegedly developed several schemes that netted him significant monies personally.
A telling statement in the suit says, "Such conduct has also affected the foundation's financial condition, reputation and ability to obtain donations and grants." Unfortunately, for any nonprofit, donations are based on trust. If there's reason to question management, or even a board's judgment, it will usually negatively impact donations.
The Apostle Paul had an appropriate warning in 1 Corinthians 15:33, "Do not be misled: Bad company corrupts good character."
When selecting team members, don't forget the importance of good character.
