Donor Privacy Policy

Information Collection

KIPP New Orleans Schools collects and uses various information from donors that includes: amount donated, address, telephone number, donor comments and e-mail address. Tax laws in the United States and the State of Louisiana require KNOS to keep contact information and contribution level of donors on file. KNOS uses donor information to understand donors' needs and provide excellent service. KNOS will never sell, trade, rent or share names (unless released for publication), e-mail or mail addresses, or telephone numbers of our donors. We will list the name of your firm along with our other donors on our website and in printed marketing materials but will remove your name from the list at any time at your request. KNOS will use contact information (e-mail, telephone number and address) of donors for these purposes only:
  • Distribute receipts for donations
  • Thank donors for their donation
  • Inform donors about upcoming fundraising and other activities of KIPP New Orleans Schools
  • Internal analysis and record keeping
  • Reporting to relevant U.S. and State agencies (these reports are not for public inspection)
  • Contact donors about changes to this policy
 KNOS allows donors the option to have their name publicly associated with their donation unless the donor explicitly chooses to remain "anonymous".

Financial Information

All access to donor financial information is strictly limited to professional staff of KNOS whose job requires them to process this data. No such data is given to any person, organization or group who does not need to access those data. Donor records are kept in a secure file cabinet.
 
To accept contributions via credit card, KNOS uses accredited online payment processing services with world-class security and data privacy policies. Unless requested by the donor for the purpose of processing recurring donations, KNOS does not store, nor does it have access to, your credit card information, bank account numbers, or other account data sent to those processing services. It is our desire to not send unwanted mail or information about KNOS to our donors. Please contact us if you wish to be removed from our mailing list.
