Donor Privacy Policy

United Way Tar River Region
Donor Privacy Policy


We respect the privacy of our donors. We retain donor information in a secure database where it is used to verify transactions, print receipts, thank supporters for their contributions, keep supporters informed, and solicit future donations. We do not keep credit card information in our database. We provide information to our Board Directors and staff on a confidential, need-to-know basis. We do not share or trade our donors’ names or personal information with others, and we do not sell that information. We release donor information to other agencies if they are receiving funds specifically designated by the donor, unless the donor has directed us otherwise. We recognize our leadership level donors in written letters and in our annual report, unless they request otherwise. We do not send mailings to donors on behalf of others. United Way Tar River Region will hold all information obtained from or about donors or prospects in strictest confidence subject to legally authorized and enforceable requests for information by government agencies and courts. Neither the name, the amount nor the conditions of any gift will be published when specifically requested by a donor.
