Donor Bill of Rights

Donor Bill of Rights HEADING_TITLE

Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the not-for-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:

 

1. To be informed of the organization’s mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources,    

    and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.

2. To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization’s governing board, and to expect the board

    to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.

3. To have access to the organization’s most recent financial statements.

4. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.

5. To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition.

6. To be assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the   

     extent provided by law. 

7. To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be

    professional in nature. 

8. To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired

    solicitors. 

9. To have the opportunity for their name to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to

    share.
