The rights of every donor: Donor Bill of Rights

Here is Our Donor’s Bill of Rights. You, the generous donor, you are what keeps us going.

Philanthropy means “love of humanity” in the sense of caring for, nourishing, developing, enhancing, what it is to be human.

It is voluntary. Whether you define it as “private initiatives for the public good”, or  “voluntary action for the public good”; it may best be defined as “private initiatives for public good, focusing on quality of life”.

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 ensure 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, and ion particular any changes to said 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 our governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgement in its stewardship responsibilities.

3. To have access to our most recent financial statements.

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

5. To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition.

6. To be given privacy, and 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 and transparent 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 names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share.

10. To be treated honestly and fairly . to feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.

11.  Security: to have all donor’s tax paperwork handled quickly and professionally: all data is stored for 10 years in multiple formats and locations.
