What Information Is Collected?

We collect PII from individual visitors, volunteers, or donors when you provide it voluntarily.  PII can include data such as names, addresses, ZIP codes, birthdays, and e-mail addresses.  It may also include web browser data that we may use for analytics and Site functionality purposes, including using web browser cookies to improve your user experience.

What Do We Do With Information?

We use PII in support of our organization’s mission. Uses include contacting you about programs and activities and requesting and facilitating donations.  Managing a non-profit organization also requires us to share your PII with certain third parties. We may share PII with third parties when (i) the person submitting the PII authorizes us to share it; (ii) the third party performs a function for us directly related to the operation of the Site or our organization, such as contacting our supporters or processing payments; or (iii) we are required to by law or court order to do so.

We maintain reasonable security measures to protect your PII from unauthorized use.  While no protections are completely secure, we strive to apply best practices to protect your PII from unauthorized physical and digital access.
