DONOR PRIVACY POLICY

Accepted March 26, 2006

Updated November 1, 2011

Assistance League of Georgetown Area does not copy, reproduce, publish, post, distribute, share or sell the name, personal contact information or description of donation of the donor to any outside individual or business. Exceptions shall be those required by law, requested in grant applications or in connection with bank credit or debit card transactions that may be made without prior knowledge or consent of the donor.

Assistance League of Georgetown Area does acknowledge donors by name and/or description of donation only after the donors have given their written permission, in certain printed materials such as chapter newsletters, brochures, press releases, event invitations or programs, stationery, solicitation letters, the organization’s website or other means of expressing appreciation for the donors’ assistance. A donor wishing to view samples of these publications may do so by contacting the chapter at the address below.

Assistance League of Georgetown Area will provide, at least annually, a means (such as a check-off box) for both new and continuing donors to inform the charity if they do not want their names acknowledged on any of the printed material mentioned above. All donations shall be treated individually so that multiple donations from a single donor shall receive the same consideration as if each were the first donation received.

If a donor chooses to opt out of any acknowledgement listings in printed material, the donor’s name and address will be made available only to members and/or staff of Assistance League of Georgetown Area who are responsible for managing the business of the corporation.

A printed copy of Assistance League of Georgetown Area’s Donor Privacy Policy will be mailed to a donor upon request and is also available on the corporation’s website.

All records of donations to Assistance League of Georgetown Area shall be maintained by the corporation according to the applicable standards of record retention in effect at the time of the donation. All records will be maintained in a secure location of the chapter.

Assistance League of Georgetown Area operates the Marilynn Seelman Memorial Thrift Shop. The names of donors contributing to the Thrift Shop are never made public without the donor’s written permission. A donor’s photograph will not be used at any time or in any chapter publication without written consent. In the case of a minor, written permission will be obtained from the parent/guardian.

The personal information of a chapter member will not be shared without the written consent of the individual. Exceptions shall be those set forth in the National Assistance League Donor Privacy Policy, a copy of which is on file with the chapter. Donations received by a chapter member will be afforded the same considerations as stated in this policy. Each chapter member will receive a copy of this policy annually.
