Privacy Policy

Donor Privacy

The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp is committed to respecting the privacy of our donors. We have developed this privacy policy to ensure our donor information is protected and will not be shared with any third party. All information concerning donors or prospective donors, including their addresses, email addresses and phone numbers, the names of their beneficiaries, etc., shall be kept strictly confidential by The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, our staff, and volunteers, unless permission is obtained from donors to release such information. It is our policy to never share or sell the names, addresses, phone numbers or email addresses of our donors.

The types of donor information that The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp collects and maintains includes:

  • Contact information: name, address, telephone number, and email address
  • Giving information
  • Information on events attended, publications received, and special requests for program information
  • Information provided by the donor in the form of comments and suggestions

The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp uses donors’ information to understand our donors’ interests in The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp’s mission and to provide updates on the organization’s plans and activities. It is shared internally only on a “need-to-know” basis.

When a donor makes a contribution to The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp using a credit card, the credit card information provided by the donor is stored in a confidential manner. The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp employees may access such information only when there is an appropriate reason to do so, such as when a refund must be issued back to the credit card. The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp maintains safeguards to protect donor credit card information, and our employees are required to follow these privacy standards. 

It is our desire to not send unwanted mail to our donors, and we can be contacted to remove donors from our mailing list. We do publish an Annual Report with donor listings under giving categories. If a donor wishes to remain anonymous, they can contact us to do so.
