Privacy Policy

We value our donors, volunteers and prospects (hereafter referred to as our “supporters”) and take their privacy seriously. We will respect the privacy of the personal and organizational information that we are privileged to have about our supporters. Our commitment to respect the privacy of our supporter extends to how we obtain, use, protect and share information about them. This privacy policy is intended to be applied in conjunction with related McLaren Northern Michigan Foundation policies, including, but not limited to, the Donor Bill of Rights.

Principles, Actions, and Beliefs:

• We do not sell supporter information.

• Without the supporter’s consent, we do not provide their information to organizations or individuals outside of McLaren Northern Michigan Foundation.

• We contractually require any person or organization providing services to McLaren Northern Michigan Foundation to protect the confidentiality of supporter information.

• We will hold strictly confidential all information concerning donors and prospects, including names, addresses, names of beneficiaries, nature and value of estates, amounts of provisions or gifts, etc. unless a donor or prospect grants permission to use selective information for purposes of referral, testimonial, example, recognition, or publicity.

• We have procedures in place to limit access to information to those employees and volunteers who need to know such information in order to fulfill our mission.

• We educate our employees and volunteers on the importance of protecting the privacy and security of confidential personal and organizational information.

• We will use our best efforts to comply with the expressed wishes of any supporter who does not want their names used in any promotional material, wishes their name removed from solicitation lists, or wishes to have their gifts or services be anonymous.

• We will collect, use and share information about our donors among employees and volunteers only on a needs-to-know basis and for the sole purpose of carrying out McLaren Northern Michigan Foundation’s mission.
