KHS staff will maintain an accurate database of all donors and prospects. It is the ethical responsibility of all KHS employees and volunteers to protect and consider confidential all information on donors and prospects that are maintained in KHS files. In accordance, all board, staff and volunteers with access to this information sign a confidentiality agreement agreeing to this statement.
Donor names and contribution levels are public information unless the donor requests anonymity. Background information and other prospect research is not public information.
A donor or prospect may request to see his/her personal file at any time during regular business hours with 24 hour notice. A donor can also choose to have their name and/or contribution level remain anonymous. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 502-515-3143 to discuss.
Prospect and donor files (including computer databases) are property of KHS. An employee or volunteer may not use, extract, duplicate, use for personal endeavors, provide to non-organizations or persons, sale or distribute for non-authorized purposes or hold any unpublished files for any use other than the advancement of the KHS mission.
KHS does not sell, trade, rent or otherwise make available personal donor information to other fundraising organizations, nor do we send mailings on behalf of other organizations. KHS is not a branch or affiliate of any national humane organization; we are a local, private nonprofit organization.
