Third-Party Analytics Services

We may use third-party analytics services on the Site, such as Google Analytics. The providers of these analytics services use technologies such as cookies and web beacons to help us analyze your use of the Site. The information collected through these means may be disclosed to or collected directly by these services. To learn more about Google Analytics, please visit

Information We Share

We may share personal information we collect on the Site. For example, unless you specify that a gift be “anonymous,” or otherwise request that your name not be listed, we list the names of donors who give $1,000 and up in some brochures and benefit programs, so as to recognize their generosity publicly. We do not sell, share, or rent our donor lists to anyone, nor do we include donor names in any direct mail solicitations.

We may also share your personal information with our partner organizations for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.  In addition, we may share personal information with service providers who perform services on our behalf, such as mailing, technology, customer service, payment processing and billing, advertising and marketing, analytics, fraud protection and data security, and others.  

We may disclose personal information (1) if we are required to do so by law or legal process, such as a court order or subpoena; (2) in response to requests by government agencies, such as law enforcement authorities; (3) to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights; (4) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical or other harm or financial loss; (5) in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity; or (6) otherwise with your consent or as directed by your representative.  We also reserve the right to transfer personal information we have about you in the event we transfer all or a portion of our organization or assets (including in the event of a merger, acquisition, joint venture, reorganization, divestiture, dissolution or liquidation).

How We Protect Personal Information

 We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information you provide against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized access, destruction, loss, alteration, disclosure or use.

Other Websites and Online Features

For your convenience and information, our Site may provide access to other online services (such as websites or social media platforms), and may include links or third-party features such as apps, tools, widgets and plug-ins. These online services and third-party features may operate independently from us. The privacy practices of the relevant third parties, including details on the information they may collect about you, are subject to the privacy statements of these parties, which we strongly suggest you review. To the extent any linked online services or third-party features are not owned or controlled by us, we are not responsible for the information practices of these third parties.
