Donor Privacy Policy:

Cancer Support Community Pasadena (CSCP) is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. We rely entirely on contributions from foundations, corporations, and individuals.

CSCP respects the privacy of its donors and has implemented a Donor Privacy Policy to honor these rights.

Donor information
CSCP collects and maintains the following types of donor information when it is voluntarily provided to us:

• Contact information such as name, address, telephone number and e-mail address
• Giving information
• Information on events and workshops attended and publications received
• Information provided by the donor in the form of comments and suggestions.

This confidential information is kept on file for IRS purposes. It is also used to analyze overall giving patterns in order to make more accurate budget projections, as well as to understand donors’ interests in our mission and to update them on the organization’s plans and activities. This information may be shared with staff, board members, and consultants only on a confidential and need-to-know basis.

List sharing
CSCP does not sell, rent, trade or share its donor list with any other organization. CSCP never sends out mailings on behalf of other organizations.

Anonymity
With each contribution, donors may request that their gift remain anonymous.

Photography
Selected photographs of donors and/or names may be included in our newsletters, on our website, and at our facility.

Discontinuing contact upon request
It is the policy of CSCP to communicate with donors according to their expressed preferences whenever possible. CSCP will discontinue or change the method used to contact any person upon that person’s oral or written request directed to the organization.

Upon a person’s request that CSCP discontinue further contact, the person’s name and address will be promptly modified in the CSCP donor database to ensure that no further contact is made with the person.

Permanent Record: CSCP will maintain an electronic record of all requests for discontinuance of contacts. Oral requests will be noted in writing by the staff of CSCP and then permanently recorded in the electronic donor database. The records of persons who have made such a request will be maintained by CSCP to the extent necessary for legal or liability purposes.

Donor Bill of Rights
CSCP subscribes to the Donor Bill of Rights, which was created by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), and the Giving Institute: Leading Consultants to Non-Profits.
