Donor Privacy Policy

The Stillwater Public Library Foundation (SPLF) values each of its individual donors and takes their privacy very seriously. The following is a brief description of the SPLF policy regarding the collection and retention of private financial data received from donors.

Financial information collected and recorded:

The SPLF collects the following personal information from our donors: donor name, acknowledgement name, amount donated, giving history, address, telephone number, email address, and in some cases, other non-financial information pertinent to event attendance. Credit card numbers are not retained in our organization’s electronic or hard files after a donation has been processed.

How we use donor information:

Donor information is used for internal purposes only. The SPLF does not sell, rent, trade or share its donor list with any other organization. The SPLF does not send out mailings on behalf of other organizations. Board members and our contract employee have access to donor records for purposes related to fund-raising and donation acknowledgements.

All individuals having access to donor records are required to abide by this policy.

In accordance with recommendations of the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits, SPLF will publicly recognize donor gifts in relevant print and online material, unless the donor requests anonymity.

Online donor transactions with SPLF are covered by this policy and are conducted over secure portals. Every reasonable effort is made to secure the privacy of donor information online.
