Donor Privacy & Confidentiality Policy


The purpose of this policy is to state the position of Boys & Girls Clubs of King County (BGCKC) on donor confidentiality and donor anonymity and will guide the actions of the Board of Directors, the Executive team and staff who may serve, regarding the rights of donors and potential donors to confidentiality regarding their transactions with BGCKC.

Boys & Girls Clubs of King County recognizes that the operation of the resource development department requires the maintenance and management of extensive donor and prospect records. Donor records often contain sensitive information that has been shared with or developed by BGCKC staff on a confidential basis. “Records” means all files, including electronic data, containing information on donors or prospective donors to BGCKC.


Kinds of information

BGCKC may collect personal information such as names, company names, titles, addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers, e-mail addresses, and payment information (such as credit card numbers)from donors. By submitting personal information, the donor acknowledges that he or she has read this privacy policy, understands it, agrees to its terms and authorizes BGCKC to collect, use and disclose personal information pursuant to the terms of this privacy policy.
Any information you submit through email, online, phone, mail, or by an employee becomes the sole property of Boys & Girls Clubs of King County.

How we use it

BGCKC uses personal information collected from donors to respond to donor inquiries, to issue donation receipts, to help in deciding who receives future fundraising appeals, to help organize fundraising events, and to inform donors of new programs and services.
