Children’s Scholarship Fund

Donor Privacy

CSF pledges to safeguard your donation information. Children’s Scholarship Fund does not sell, rent, or share your contact information with other organizations or businesses. Donors to CSF have the option to be deleted from our mailing list at any time by phone, fax, email, or written letter. Annually, one of our mailings will contain an opt-out procedure you can use to officially request to be removed from our mailing list.

No individual’s donation is announced publicly without the permission and prior knowledge of the donor, and CSF never makes a donation history available to any party outside CSF. Donors whose contributions are given in memory or in honor of another person will receive a copy of any announcement that goes to the honoree or their family. Also, the amount of the donation will not be made public to the honoree unless the donor specifically requests it.
