Donor Bill of Rights

A Donor Bill of Rights

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 non-for-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:

I.

To be informed of the organization's mission, of

the way the organization intends to

use donated resources, and of its capacity to use

donations effectively for their intended purposes.

VI.

To be assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.

II.

To be informed of the identity of those serving

on the organization's governing board,

and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities

VII.

To expect that all relationships with

individuals representing organizations of interest

to the donor will be professional in nature.

III.

To have access to the organization's

most recent financial statements.

VIII.

To be informed whether those seeking

donations are volunteers, employees of the

organization or hired solicitors.

IV.

To be assured their gifts will be used for

the purposes for which they were given.

IX.

To have the opportunity for their

names to be deleted from mailing lists that

an organization may intend to share.

V.

To receive appropriate

acknowledgement and recognition.

X.

To feel free to ask questions when making

a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.
