Donor Privacy Policy
July 2019
United Way of Frederick County (UWFC) respects the privacy of donors and safeguards the confidentiality of information that the donor would reasonably expect to be private.  Information learned by any representative of UWFC about a donor or a donor’s assets or philanthropic intentions shall be held in strict confidence by the staff, volunteers, committees and the Board.
Donors who reach special recognition levels (e.g. Alexis de Tocqueville Society) may be acknowledged and published in various UWFC publications and campaign materials.  Donors at recognition levels may request to remain anonymous in these publications by indicating their wishes on their pledge card or by contacting UWFC.  UWFC will honor requests by donors to remain anonymous.
UWFC does not sell, rent or exchange its mailing lists of donors, prospective donors, interested parties, etc.  UWFC will honor requests by donors to remain anonymous, have their names removed from mailing lists, or to restrict appeals.  Information about donors, amounts of their gifts, and other information that should be private will not be made public.
