DONOR PRIVACY POLICIES
Fundraising Policy. Funds shall be solicited in a respectful manner and without pressure. All third parties not directly affiliated with Warrior Battalion who wish to solicit funds on behalf of the agency must acquire written permission from the Warrior Battalion’s management prior to beginning any fundraising activities. Donor-designated restrictions on contributions shall be honored. Warrior Battalion is in the process of becoming a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and contributions made to the agency are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law once we receive IRS permission. Written tax receipts shall be issued for all donations. If the donor receives anything in exchange for their donation, such as a dinner or event admission, the tax receipt shall clearly state what portion of the donation is tax deductible. At the beginning of each calendar year, Warrior Battalion shall provide its donors with written documentation of all tax deductible gifts received during the prior calendar year.
Information Collected. Here are the types of donor information that we collect and maintain: contact information: name, organization/church, complete address, phone number, email address; payment information: credit card number and expiration date, and billing information; shipping information: name, organization, complete address; information concerning how you heard about Warrior Battalion; information you wish to share: questions, comments, suggestions; and your request to receive periodic updates; e.g., to individuals who request it, we will send periodic mailings related to specific fund-raising appeals, program opportunities, and newsletters. How Information is Used. Warrior Battalion uses your information to understand your needs and provide you with better service. Specifically, we use your information to help you complete a transaction, communicate back to you, and update you on organization activities. Credit card numbers are used only for donation or payment processing and are not retained for other purposes. We use the comments you offer to provide you with information requested, and we take seriously each recommendation as to how we might improve communication. No Sharing of Personal Information. Warrior Battalion will not sell, rent, or lease your personal information to other organizations. We assure you that the identity of all our donors will be kept confidential. Use of donor information will be limited to the internal purposes of Warrior Battalion and only to further the ministry activities and purposes of helping veterans. Removing Your Name From Our Mailing List. It is our desire to not send unwanted mail to our donors. Please contact us if you wish to be removed from our mailing list.
