The Favela Painting Foundation requires directors, officers and employees to observe high standards of business and personal ethics in the conduct of their duties and responsibilities. As employees and representatives of the Favela Painting Foundation, we must practice honesty and integrity in fulfilling our responsibilities and comply with all applicable laws and regulations.


This Whistleblower Policy is intended to encourage and enable employees and others to raise serious concern internally so that Favela Painting can address and correct inappropriate conduct and actions. It is the responsibility of all board members, employees and volunteers to report concerns about violations of Favela Painting’s code of ethics or suspected violations of law or regulations that govern Favela Painting’s operations.


It is contrary to the values of Favela Painting for anyone to retaliate against any board member, employee or volunteer who in good faith reports an ethics violation, or a suspected violation of law, such as a complaint of discrimination, or suspected fraud, or suspected violation of any regulation governing the operations of Favela Painting. An employee who retaliates against someone who has reported a violation in good faith is subject to discipline up to and including termination of employment.


Favela Painting has an open door policy and suggests that employees share their questions, concerns, suggestions or complaints with their supervisor. If you are not comfortable speaking with your supervisor or you are not satisfied with your supervisor’s response, you are encouraged to speak with the Executive Director, or a board member. Supervisors and managers are required to report complaints or concerns about suspected
ethical and legal violations in writing to the Favela Painting Foundation. Employees with concerns or complaints may also submit their concerns in writing directly to their supervisor or the Executive Director.


Favela Painting is responsible for ensuring that all complaints about unethical or illegal conduct are investigated and resolved. The Compliance Officer will advise the Executive Director and the Board of Directors of all complaints and their resolution and will report at least annually to the Treasurer/Chair of the Finance Committee/Audit Committee on compliance activity relating to accounting or alleged financial improprieties.


Favela Painting shall immediately notify the Audit Committee/Finance Committee of any concerns or complaint
regarding corporate accounting practices, internal controls or auditing and work with the committee until the matter is resolved.


Violations or suspected violations may be submitted on a confidential basis by the complainant. Reports of violations or suspected violations will be kept confidential to the extent possible,
consistent with the need to conduct an adequate investigation.


Favela Painting will notify the person who submitted a complaint and acknowledge receipt of the reported violation or suspected violation. All reports will be promptly investigated and appropriate corrective action will be taken if warranted by the investigation.

Policy approved by the Board of Directors on 20-02-2018.
