Youngstown Area Goodwill Industries, Inc. is committed to respecting the privacy of its donors. Goodwill has developed this Policy on Use of Personal Information of Donors to assure donors that their personal information will not be sold or rented to, or exchanged with, any third party.

Awareness: Goodwill provides this Policy on Use of Personal Information of Donors to make donors aware of its privacy policy and to inform donors of the way their information is used. Goodwill also provides donors with the opportunity to remove their names from its mailing lists, if they choose.

Information Collected: These are the types of personal information that Goodwill collects and maintains:

  • Contact information: name, complete address, phone number, email address;
  • Gift amount, date, and any gift restrictions requested by the donor

How Information is Used: Goodwill uses this information to provide acknowledgement and a receipt for tax purposes, to understand donors’ needs, to provide better service, and to offer alternative methods for donors to express their support for the mission of Goodwill. Specifically, Goodwill uses information to help donors complete their transactions, to communicate with donors, to update donors on events and achievements by Goodwill, to provide information on volunteer opportunities, and to contact donors periodically to determine their interest in providing additional support for Goodwill.

No Sale, Rent or Exchange of Personal Information: Goodwill does not sell, rent or exchange donors’ personal information. Goodwill uses donors’ personal information for its internal purposes only, to advance the charitable mission and activities of Goodwill.

Publication of Names: On occasion, Goodwill lists the names of its donors in its newsletters or other publications. Donors may contact Goodwill to request that they not be included in such lists. Donors also have the option of choosing to remain anonymous.

Removing Donors’ Names from Goodwill’s Mailing List: Goodwill does not intend to send unwanted mail to its donors. Donors may contact Goodwill if they wish to be removed from its mailing lists.
