Privacy Policy

Transparency, Trust, Privacy

Thank you so much for your support and trust of NP.

Transparency, trust and the privacy of our donors is very important to us. That is why we have a Donor Privacy Policy. Please read the following to understand how your rights as donor and how your information is collected and used.

Donor Privacy Policy

Contributions from individuals, foundations, religious organizations and other institutions allow Nonviolent Peaceforce to assess and start new projects and programs, advocate for unarmed methods to protect civilians at the UN and other institutions and provide administrative and fundraising support for these programs. 

Respect for the privacy and preferences of donors is extremely important to us. We collect information that is voluntarily provided for us such as: 

  • Names, addresses, telephone numbers and emails.
  • Giving information.
  • Events attended including video and telephone conferences, publications received and survey answers.
  • Information provided by donors in the form of requests, questions, suggestions, and comments. 

This information is kept on record for IRS filing. It is also used to determine donor’s interest in the mission, to communicate with donors based on their interests and preferences, for listing names in our Annual Report and to forecast the budget for the following fiscal year. Any board members, staff, contractors, interns or volunteers who are given access to this secure information for their job functions must review and sign our confidentiality agreement.

List sharing for U.S. donors

We have changed our privacy policy. To ensure sustainable growth of the organization and to meet the needs of civilians living in conflict, Nonviolent Peaceforce will occasionally share voluntarily provided names and postal addresses of our U.S. donors with carefully selected like-minded organizations. To opt-out of having your information shared please call 612-871-0005 or email [email protected]

Requests for discontinuing contact

Nonviolent Peaceforce communicates with donors according to their expressed preferences. We update and maintain a record of communication preferences. We will discontinue or change the method of communication from any staff or agent employed by Nonviolent Peaceforce, who are communicating on behalf of the organization. This does not include individuals or groups voluntarily fundraising for Nonviolent Peaceforce, even if the person is listed as “Do Not Contact”. For example, we cannot prohibit an individual who voluntarily sets-up a Facebook fundraiser from soliciting other individuals even if they are marked “Do Not Contact” in our records. If a request for no further contact is made by a person or a person’s authorized representative, their record will be marked as such and steps will be taken to ensure no further contact is made. Laws applicable to the country and geographic location where the person resides are adhered to. For European donors, Nonviolent Peaceforce complies with GDPR regulations.

The Donor Bill of Rights 

We subscribe to the Donor Bill of Rights, which was created by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), and the Giving Institute: Leading Consultants to Non-Profits. It has been endorsed by numerous organizations. Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the not-for-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:

I. To be informed of the organization's mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.

II. To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization's governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities. 

III. To have access to the organization's most recent financial statements. 

IV. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given. 

V. To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition. 

VI. To be assured that information about their donation is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.

VII. To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature. 

VIII. To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors. 

IX. To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share. 

X. To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.
