How Information is Used
Community Action Opportunities uses your data to maintain records of donations, send acknowledgements, mail year-end tax statements to you, send newsletters, notices and direct mail pieces, and for internal marketing purposes. We normally add you to our mailing list, unless you request otherwise. Our third-party mailing service is contractually obligated to treat the lists with confidentiality and is prohibited from transferring them elsewhere.
We do NOT list individuals’ names in ANY of our publications. Corporate and Foundation sponsors are listed in our Annual Report and event programs.
We use your written comments/letters occasionally to post on our website (in an anonymous fashion), and to respond to your inquiries.
Credit card numbers are NOT retained once processed. Our website has a SSL certificate.
Donations over 2% of our entire budget must be reported on IRS Form 990, Schedule B.
We use website statistics to analyze our website usage.
No Sharing of Personal Information
Community Action Opportunities will not sell, rent, trade or transfer your personal information to outside organizations. Use of donor information will be limited to the internal purposes of Community Action Opportunities and only to further the mission of Community Action Opportunities. Nevertheless, security measures may not prevent all losses, and Community Action Opportunities is not responsible for any damages or liabilities relating to security failures.
