We occasionally exchange our donor name, email address, and address list with other reputable nonprofit organizations to keep our costs down. If shared, the other nonprofit organization is only permitted to use such information for a one-time mailing or online advertising and cannot use it for telemarketing and/or emailing purposes. You can opt out of this exchange at any time by emailing us at and providing your complete name, email address, and/or mailing address.

If you choose to make a donation online, by phone, through the mail or by other means we will share your personal information with our processing service providers. While we believe these other companies will treat your personal information responsibly, we do not own or control them and cannot guarantee your privacy.
