What Information We Collect
Partnership for the Future collects personal information from our donors to include name, address, employer, amount donated, telephone number and email address. We do not sell, share or exchange the personal information of our donors. It remains in our database, restricted to PFF Staff viewing and processing.
How that Information is Used
Partnership for the Future uses donor personal information to process personal donations in our database, as well as to create donor thank-you letters and acknowledgements. Donors’ names are also listed yearly on our website and in our annual report to publicly recognize their support, unless donors have specified to remain anonymous. Donors’ employer’s information is strictly used to process matching gifts. We do not solicit donors’ employers. Donors’ information may be used to send quarterly newsletters, providing donors with updates on the organization. Donors’ information is also used for internal analysis and reporting to U.S. and State agencies.
Protection of Personal Information
Partnership for the Future takes every precaution to protect the privacy of our donors. In regards to this, no one is granted access to our donor information except those responsible for collecting and processing donations. We also are strong believers and advocates of the Association of Fundraising Professionals’ (and others) Donor Bill of Rights –
Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To ensure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the non-for-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:
I. To be informed of the organization’s mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.
II. To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization’s governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.
III. To have access to the organization’s most recent financial statements.
IV. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.
V. To receive appropriate acknowledge and recognition.
VI. To be assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.
VII. To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.
VIII. To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors.
IX. To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share.
X. To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.
