Donor Privacy

LTSC is committed to respecting the privacy of our donors.

We obtain personal information from donors, prospective donors, and volunteers through pledge cards, letters, surveys, applications, and other forms, in writing, in person, by telephone, from our website and electronically.

Here are the types of donor information that we collect and maintain:

  • Name, company/employer, organization, complete address, telephone number(s), e-mail address(es);
  • Credit card number and expiration date, and billing information;
  • History of philanthropic giving, volunteer activities, community service work;
  • Social security numbers from car donors if the car sell for more than $500;
  • Birth date, family members, interests;
  • Interactions an individual may have had with LTSC; and
  • Information concerning how donors heard about LTSC.

We will use the above information to:

  • Distribute receipts for donations;
  • Thank donors for their donation;
  • Inform/invite donors (to join in fund raising and other activities at LTSC);
  • Internal analysis and record keeping;
  • Reporting to relevant Federal and State agencies (not for public inspection). After social security numbers are reported to the Internal Revenue Service for car donations, they are not retained or stored by LTSC; and
  • Credit card numbers are used only for donation or payment processing and are not retained for other purposes.

LTSC will not sell, rent, or lease your personal information to other organizations. Unless you tell us otherwise, after you make a donation your name will be listed one time in our monthly on-line newsletter, and again in our annual report with the dollar range of your donation and your Honor Grove years of membership, if applicable.

If you wish to be removed from our mailing list, or if you have comments or questions about our donor privacy policy, please contact us.
