JAFCO Donor Privacy Policy

Our Commitment to Privacy

JAFCO is committed to the privacy of all our donors. Your privacy is a priority, and we take critical steps necessary to protect your personally identifying information. Our Donor Privacy provides details on how your personal information is used when you make a gift to JAFCO.

As a donor submitting your personal information to JAFCO, you consent to the terms and conditions of the policy and to our processing and use of personal information for the purposes stated below.

Information Collected by JAFCO

When you make a gift online, send in a donation via mail, give at an event or at another interaction, we will naturally ask for personal information such as name, email address, mailing address and telephone number and store it in our secure donor database so that we can thank you and communicate with you in the future. If you prefer no communication, just drop us an email or a phone call and let us know, it’s as easy as that!

Use + Disclosure of Personal Information

JAFCO will never sell, rent, share or exchange any personal information about you with anyone including your name, address, email address or phone number.

We keep the personal information we receive when you donate in a secure donor database and this information is used only for future communications with you from JAFCO.

Donor Recognition

JAFCO demonstrates our gratitude to our donors (over $1,800.00) by thanking them in a listing in our annual newsletter and on our website. Donors attending events may also be featured in post-event photos and publicity articles. Donors who wish to remain anonymous may simply contact us by and we will fully honor your wishes regarding recognition. 

If you would like to update your personal information or your communication preferences, please contact us at [email protected].

Gift Processing + Credit Card Transactions

Credit card information is not stored permanently and is used only to process the transaction for which it is intended and in accordance with the law. The only exception to this policy are donors who request that JAFCO retains their credit card information for the purpose and convenience of monthly/recurring donations.

We may verify with third parties the information collected in the course of processing a gift, event registration or other donation. If you use a credit or debit card on our website, we may use card authorization and fraud screening services to verify that your card information and address matches the information that you supplied to us and that the card being used has not been reported lost or stolen.

Larger donations that meet reporting thresholds may be reported on the IRS Form 990 that is filed by JAFCO annually.


JAFCO uses state of the art security measures and password protected software to ensure the security of your personal information on our computer system and to protect it from unauthorized access. Donor information is stored securely within a donor management database with access that is restricted to authorized personnel. We assure you that all donor information will be kept confidential. Uses of donor information will be limited to the internal purposes of JAFCO and only to further raise awareness and funds for JAFCO programs.
