Do you have any special security protocols that donors should be aware of?
Our third-party websites used to process donations are PCI compliant and our database is accessed through SSL-encrypted connections. Access to our database is restricted to select staff and contractors on a need-to-know basis with signed confidentiality agreements.
How do you collect donor information?
If you send us an e-mail or complete an online form containing personal information, we will collect and store that information, such as mailing address, e-mail address, and phone number. We may use this information for a variety of reasons:
- If we have any need to contact you, such as trouble with a donation, this contact information is used to contact the donor.
- If you supply us with your mailing address, you may receive periodic mailings from us with updates about our programs and mission.
- The e-mail address you provide may be used to send you information and updates pertaining to your donation, in addition to receiving general emails about our programs and mission.
If your information changes (such as your address), please feel free to contact us with the updates so we can correct and update your personal data.
How do you use donor information?
We do not sell or rent personal information about our donors. We do share donor information (including name, address, phone number, email address, and giving history) with third party vendors and donor databases for data and wealth analysis and fundraising modeling and strategies to support our fundraising efforts. These vendors and databases may store and use the information provided by us for their own fundraising strategies.
How can I opt out?

If you no longer wish to receive general e-mails from us, you may opt out by completing this form. We also provide an unsubscribe link at the bottom of every e-mail for those who wish to stop general e-mails. You may still receive donation-related e-mails.
If at any time you no longer wish to receive physical mailings from us, you may opt out by completing this form. You may still, from time to time, receive donation-related mailings even if you opt out.
