Personal information is used primarily in processing pledges and donations made to the foundation. When a pledge is made, the donated funds are matched to the pledge and a receipting function, where required, is used via our database.
The option to show your donation on the donors list is given during the pledge process and will be displayed upon receipt of donation if that option is chosen. We respect anonymity and can accept donations anonymously, however, provisions contained in taxation legislation require us to collect the name of the donor if the donor requires a tax deductible receipt.
You have the option to receive our newsletters by either opting in via the newsletter subscription on the website or during the pledge process.
