Privacy Policy

The Next Door values and respects
your right to privacy.

We ensure proper stewardship of your charitable contributions and ensure that contributions are used in accordance with your written instructions.

We protect your personal information and use the highest standards in gathering, using, and safeguarding your personal and gift information.

The Next Door never shares donor information of any kind with any other parties. We do not sell, trade, rent or give your information to anyone.

We will collect, use and share information about our supporters among employees and volunteers only on a need-to-know basis and for the sole purpose of carrying out our mission.

We educate our employees and volunteers on the importance of protecting the privacy and security of confidential personal and organizational information.

How we collect and use supporter information
The Next Door collects and uses personal information such as name, address, phone number, and email address when a donor voluntarily provides it to us. In addition, The Next Door keeps a record of each donor’s giving history. This information is kept on file for IRS purposes and is also used to analyze overall giving patterns to make accurate budget projections. We respect donors preferences for listing their names in our publications. We offer donors the option of anonymity.

The Next Door abides by the Donor Bill of Rights endorsed by the American Association of Fundraising Professionals.

The Donor Bill of Rights
Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To ensure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the nonprofit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:

I. To be informed of the organization’s mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.

II. To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization’s governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.

III. To have access to the organization’s most recent financial statements.

IV. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.

V. To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition.

VI. To be assured that information about their donation is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.

VII. To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.

VIII. To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors.

IX. To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share.

X. To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.
