The Foundation’s Rules of Procedures were formally adopted by the Board of Directors by resolution on November 25, 2009. The Donor Privacy Policy is addressed in Section IV of the Rules of Procedures.

Donor Privacy Policy
The Foundation donor privacy policy shall be in writing, and guaranteeing that the donor’s information will not be sold or traded to anyone else, nor will the Foundation send mailings on behalf of other organizations. Furthermore, this policy must be prominently displayed on the Foundation’s website or in its marketing and solicitation materials.

IV.1. What information we collect – The Foundation collects and uses various personal information from donors that includes: amount donated, address, telephone number, donor comments and e-mail address. Tax laws in the United States and the State of Kansas require that the Foundation keep contact information and contribution level of donors on file.

IV.2. How we use that information – The Foundation will never publish, sell, trade, rent or share names (unless released for publication), e-mail or mail addresses, or telephone numbers of our donors. The Foundation will use contact information (e-mail, telephone number and address) of donors for these purposes only:

  • Distribute receipts for donations;
  • Thank donors for their donation;
  • Inform donors about upcoming fundraising and other activities of the Foundation;
  • Internal analysis and record keeping;
  • Reporting to relevant U.S. and State agencies (these reports are not for public inspection);
  • Contact donors about changes to this policy

The Foundation allows donors the option to have their name publicly associated with their donation unless the donor explicitly chooses the “anonymous” field when donating online. In all other cases the default is for staff and volunteers to assume all donations are not to be publicly announced unless the donor explicitly indicates otherwise.

Comments given in donor forms are published in public lists and may be used in promotional materials while comments sent to us via email, fax or telephone are kept strictly confidential.

IV.3 Financial information – All access to donor financial information is strictly limited to professional staff to process gifts. No such data are given to any person, organization or group who does not need to access those data.

The Foundation uses online payment processing services with high-level security and strong internal controls. The Foundation does not store, nor does it have access to, your credit card information, bank account numbers, or other account data.
