I am looking for sponsors for some upcoming projects, and the big debate people are having is "what consitutes an ethical sponsor?"

Does anyone wish to recommend any guidelines or link to sites that determine the ethicality of various companies. Any ideas for non-corporate funding?

Oooh, that's a tricky question, because there are certain groups for which an ethical 'concern' will be a dealbreaker, and others where the same concern would be considered minor. I don't know of any websites, but the first place I would start is with companies who are involved in Fair Trade.

If you are attached to a university, then maybe the Women's Centre or the PIRG would be able to give you a bit of money, but it depends on how much you are looking for.

What kind of projects are you thinking of?
