HSF DONOR PRIVACY STATEMENT
Our annual report publishes the names of individuals who contribute $1,000 and above. You may, however, choose to waive this benefit by designating your support as “anonymous.” This ensures your name will never appear on any public, HSF donor list.
DONOR BILL OF RIGHTS
The Hispanic Scholarship Fund adheres to the Donor Bill of Rights created by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), and the Giving Institute: Leading Consultants to Non-Profits.
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 assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the not-for-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, it is declared that all donors have these rights.
1. 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 purpose.
2. 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.
3. To have access to the organization's most recent financial statements.
4. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.
5. To receive appropriate acknowledgment and recognition.
6. To be assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.
7. To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.
8. To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers or employees of the organization or hired solicitors.
9. To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share.
10. To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful, and forthright answers.
Collection of Donor Information: If you register to participate in an HSF event (e.g. a dinner, outreach event, or golf tournament) using our event registration site, we collect your basic personal information such as address and phone number. We may also ask you if you are an HSF scholarship recipient to better understand community involvement of our alumni.
Contribution: If you choose to use a credit card to donate or purchase through this site, we collect standard credit card information (card number, card type, expiration date) and keep a record of your financial transaction. Credit card numbers are held only until the charge can be processed (usually several minutes). If you submit your credit card information on paper, the information is destroyed immediately after the transaction is complete.
Requests: If you submit an online request for HSF products such as free brochures, or submit a question through a “contact us” query, we may have to gather additional information from you to respond to your request. Such information will vary with the request but often includes name, shipping address, telephone number, and email address.
