DONOR PRIVACY GUIDELINES
All information concerning donors or perspective donors, including their names, addresses and telephone numbers, the names of their beneficiaries, the amount of their gift, etc., shall be kept strictly confidential by Pearl Buck Center, its staff, and volunteers, unless permission is obtained from donors to release such information.
A DONOR BILL OF RIGHTS GUIDELINES
Pearl Buck Center has adopted “A Donors Bill of Rights”, in action and philosophy to demonstrate a commitment to protecting our donors interests and gifts.
In 1993, AFP, the American Association of Fundraising Counsel (now the Giving Institute: Leading Consultants to Non-Profits), the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP) and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) developed A Donor Bill of Rights so that donors and prospective donors could have full confidence in the nonprofits they support. Since then, thousands of organizations have adopted A Donor Bill of Rights.
Advancing A Donor Bill of Rights can be accomplished easily by:
- Incorporating it in board orientation and board training sessions
- Printing a copy on the back of your organization’s letterhead
- Posting it in a prominent location on your website
- Including a copy in your media or public relations packet
- Featuring it in our newsletter or magazine
