The American Warrior Foundation is committed to protecting the privacy of
our donors. We may collect personal data about donors for the following
To administer and maintain accounts relating to donations.
To facilitate fundraising.
To communicate with donors and prospective donors concerning the
Association and Association programs and services.
To comply with legal and regulatory requirements. Such personal
information may include: name, address, phone number, email address,
and credit card number when a donor voluntarily provides it to the
Association. In addition, the American Warrior Association keeps a record
of each donor's giving history. This information is kept on file for IRS
purposes and is also used by the Association to analyze overall giving
patterns in order to make more accurate budget projections.
RECOGNITION AND REPORTING
Where appropriate, and with the knowledge and consent of the donor, the
Association may publicly recognize the receipt and purpose of an individual
gift. However, unless desired by the donor, the Association will not disclose
the amount of such gifts, except where required by law. Data on donors
and donation amounts may be aggregated and void of identifying
information for reporting purposes without the explicit consent of the
donors. The Association may compile an Annual Report every year
and list donors in giving categories. Donors may contact the Association’s
development office to have their name removed from publications, such as
an Annual Report.
Protocols are in place to safeguard donor information, including:
Physical measures, including locked filing cabinets and restricted access
Limiting access on a “need to know” basis.
Technological measures, such as the use of passwords for database
access and encryption for online giving.
A records retention policy.
The American Warrior Association does not sell or trade donor’s personal
information, nor does the Association send donor mailings on behalf of
other organizations. Individual records are kept only as long as necessary
to fulfill the purpose for which they were collected and to comply with
