The AFSE Foundation collects and uses various information from donors that includes: amount donated, address, telephone number, donor comments and e-mail address. Tax laws in the United States and the State of Florida require the Foundation to keep contact information and contribution level of donors on file.
The AFSE Foundation uses donor information to understand donors’ needs and provide excellent service. The Foundation will never sell, trade, rent or share names (unless released for publication), e-mail or mail addresses, or telephone numbers of our donors. We will list the name of your firm along with our other donors on our website and in printed marketing materials but will remove your name from the list at any time at your request. The Foundation 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
- Internal analysis and record keeping
- Reporting to relevant U.S. and State agencies
Properly anonymized donor information is used for promotional and fundraising activities. The AFSE Foundation allows donors the option to have their name publicly associated with their donation unless the donor explicitly chooses to remain anonymous.
All access to donor financial information is strictly limited to professional staff and volunteers whose jobs require them to process or use this data. No data is given to any person, organization or group who does not need to access those data.
It is our desire not to send unwanted mail or information about the AFSE Foundation to our donors. Please contact us if you wish to be removed from our mailing list or from our emailing list.
