Donor Privacy Policy

United Way of Greater New Haven values the trust its donors and other stakeholders place in the organization and adheres to the highest standards in gathering, using and safeguarding their information. We will not sell, rent or trade personal information to any third party.

The information donors or their employer provides to us is used to help ensure accurate records for our campaign, to process and confirm receipt of their donation and to respond to any donor requests. We also use donor information to send acknowledgement of their gift and to provide information about how their gift makes a difference in the community. If donors do not wish to receive communications, they can let us know at any time by contacting the United Way office. In addition, every e-newsletter donors receive from United Way includes instructions on how to unsubscribe.

We educate our employees on the importance of protecting the privacy and security of confidential personal and organizational information.

There are times we publicly recognize and thank donors, volunteers and other stakeholders for their generosity. If donors prefer to remain anonymous, they can contact the United Way office.

We do not provide donor information to third parties except under the following conditions:

Designations

If a portion of their donation is directed to another organization, we provide the donor’s name, workplace (if applicable), contact information, and the amount of the donation to the organization receiving the donation. If donors do not want this to occur, they are able to indicate that they wish to remain anonymous. Although we expect other organizations to have high privacy standards, we do not control their policies and we therefore cannot take responsibility for their use of donor contact information.

Third Party Suppliers

In order to maintain cost effectiveness and continue to provide a high level of donor service, selected third parties (i.e. data processing, pledge card scanning or mail house firms) may conduct processing duties on our behalf. We expect these companies to uphold strict confidentiality commitments and not keep information on file after the contract has been completed.

As Required By Law

We will release information when we are required to comply with applicable law.
