donor privacy policy

Inspiration Corporation is committed to respecting the privacy of our donors and prospective donors. The types of donor information that it collects and maintains are as follows:

  • Contact information: name, address, telephone number, and email address
  • Giving information: gift dates, amounts, and purpose
  • Information on events attended, publications received, and special requests for program information
  • Information provided by the donor in the form of comments and suggestions

Inspiration Corporation uses donors’ information to understand their interests in its mission and to update them on the organization’s plans and activities.

Information is shared with staff, board members, volunteers and consultants only on a “need-to-know” basis.  With respect to anonymous gifts, Inspiration Corporation will restrict donor information to only those staff and board members whose job responsibilities require access to a donor’s information.

Inspiration Corporation uses third party vendors to provide services on its website and in offline business operations.  Donor information may be provided to those vendors on a confidential basis so that those vendors can provide services (such as database management, email list administration, fundraising event ticketing, or credit card processing) on Inspiration Corporation’s behalf.  Inspiration Corporation will not sell or share donor information with any third party for that party’s use apart from providing services to Inspiration Corporation unless a donor has granted permission, in writing, to do so.

This privacy policy is updated periodically, and the most recent date the donor privacy policy was updated is indicated at the end of this policy.  By submitting personal information to Inspiration Corporation, a donor agrees that Inspiration Corporation may use the donor’s information in accordance with this privacy policy.

If you have comments or questions about Inspiration Corporation’s donor privacy policy, please contact Mary Coy, Chief Development Officer at (773) 878-0981 x204 or
