Donor Privacy Policy

IslandWood maintains the highest level of respect for the privacy of its donors. In furtherance of our commitment to honor your rights, we have developed this Donor Privacy Policy to guide our staff and volunteers on how they may and may not use your personal information.


We use personal information collected from donors for the purposes of processing payments and communicating with donors about IslandWood as well as conducting the fundraising and other operations of IslandWood. This information may include name, amount donated, address, telephone number, donor comments, e-mail address, and any other personal information provided to us (“Donor Data”). For donations by check, Donor Data also includes the data visible on the check.


Payment Processors and Other Service Providers. Payment processors allow donors to give electronically using a payment services account, a credit card, or other payment method. These processors collect certain information from donors, and you should consult their privacy policies to determine their practices.

  • Donor Data. Donor Data may be used for these kinds of purposes:
    • Distributing receipts and thanking donors for donations
    • Informing donors about upcoming fundraising and other activities of IslandWood
  • Internal analysis, such as research and analytics
  • Record keeping
  • Reporting to applicable government agencies as required by law
  • Surveys, metrics, and other analytical purposes
  • Other purposes related to the fundraising operations


Unless otherwise stated, we do not publish, sell, trade, or rent Donor Data. Anonymized donor information may be used for promotional and fundraising activities. Comments that are provided by donors may be publicly published and may be used in promotional materials. We may use available information to supplement the Donor Data to improve the information we use to drive our fundraising efforts. We may allow donors the option to have their name publicly associated with their donation. We use data gathered for payment processors and other service providers only for the purposes described in this policy.

It is our internal policy to limit access to financial information to professional staff and volunteers who need to process that information for the purposes described above. Personal financial information is not sold to or traded with other parties.


We use partners to provide online payment processing services. Usually, the privacy policies of these organizations will be presented to you on their respective websites and typically also as part of your donation process. If you pay by credit card, we do not store your credit card information, bank account numbers, or other financial account data sent directly to those processing services.

If you have questions about this Donor Privacy Policy or requests about the status and correctness of your donor data, please email [email protected] or write to:

We are committed to protecting donor personal information from unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction. Among other things, we undertake a range of security practices, including measures to help secure web access to sensitive data and undertake efforts to address security vulnerabilities for various tools and databases.

We may disclose information when required by law; when needed to protect our rights, privacy, safety, property, donors, or users; and when necessary to enforce our terms of service.

We may change the Donor Privacy Policy from time to time. Any and all changes will be reflected on this page. Substantive changes may also be announced through the standard mechanisms by which we communicate with our community. You should periodically check this page for any changes to the current policy.

We seek to retain donor-related information only as needed to fulfill the purposes described in this policy unless a longer retention period is required by law or regulations. For example, tax laws in the United States and the State of Washington may require IslandWood to keep contact information and contribution levels of donors on file.

You have certain rights with respect to the information we collect about you. Upon request, we will tell you what information we hold about you and correct any incorrect information. We will also make reasonable efforts to delete your information if you ask us to do so, unless we are otherwise required to keep it. In this spirit, IslandWood supports the Donor Bill of Rights.

This particular policy applies to the entity that is posting it. This policy does not address data from sources other than donations, such as edits or content contributions to projects or features.
