Donor Privacy Policy

The Woodson Center is committed to respecting the privacy of our donors. We have developed this privacy policy to ensure our donors that donor information will not be shared with any third party.


How We Use That Information

The Woodson Center collects and uses various forms of information from persons donating to the organization (donors) that includes: amount donated, address, telephone number, donor comments, and e-mail address. Tax laws in the United States require the WC to keep contact information and contribution level of donors on file. The WC will never publish, sell, trade, rent, or share names (unless released for publication), e-mail or mail addresses, or telephone numbers of donors. The WC 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 WC
  • 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

Staff and volunteers assume that all donations from persons 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. However, periodically anonymous donor information may be used by the WC for its promotional and fundraising activities.


Financial Information

All access to donor financial information is strictly limited to professional staff that is responsible for processing those data. No such data are given to any person, organization or group who does not need to access those data.

TWC only uses online payment processing services with world class security and strong reputations. TWC does not store, nor does it have access to, your credit card information, bank account numbers, or other account data sent to those processing services.
