Disclosure of Your Personal Information

We respect your privacy, and it is our policy that personal information provided to Making It Better will not be shared outside of Making It Better without our donor’s expressed consent.

Personal information is solely utilized to process and receive donations, register attendance at an event or meeting, or to respond to information requests from Website visitors and donors. Donor anonymity will be respected if requested and where applicable. Making It Better does not sell, rent, or trade consumer mailing lists.

The Information We Collect

The only time Making It Better will ask for your personal information is when you register with us to make an online donation. During this process, Making It Better asks for your name, organization, address, city and state, zip code, phone, fax, email, and birth date.

We will store that information in our database to add you to our mailing list so that we can send you information about Making It Better.

Typically the mailing list would be used initially for recruitment or fundraising events and programs that benefit and support the mission of Making It Better. If you do not wish to receive such solicitations or notices, you will need to inform us separately that you do not wish to receive such information. In addition, if you contact Making It Better, we may keep a record of that correspondence. If at any time you no longer wish to receive e-mails from Making It Better, please let us know. 

What Information We Collect and How We Use It

Unless you specify that a gift is “anonymous” or otherwise request that your name not be listed, we list the names of donors on our Website, in some brochures, on email newsletters and event programs to recognize the generosity of those who have given to us. We do not sell our donor lists to anyone.

Making It Better strives to keep donors informed about how donations are used and their importance for continuing our programs. We send several e-blasts and mailings each year to accomplish this and include a donation reply card to invite financial support. Most Making It Better supporters want to receive all of our mailings and newsletters. However, you may opt-out of any and all mailings.

Our Commitment to Security

Making It Better operates secure data networks protected by industry-standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary, and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our users. 

To protect your information offline, we have implemented appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect from you online.
