Your right to privacy is very important to us. We recognize that providing the Foundation with your personal information is an act of trust. When you visit the Foundation online, you remain anonymous, as we do not require registration to view our website or access information.
We may occasionally ask for your feedback via surveys or other communications to better understand your interests and needs. We will also request information through online forms used to register for a Foundation event. The Foundation does not share or make public any personal information gathered through our website.

- IRS Forms 990 and affiliated schedules for the past three years.
- Exemption letter from the IRS.
- Approved application for exemption with supporting documentation.
Lists of our donors, other than those published in the annual report, are not available to the public. We do not reveal the name of anonymous donors to the recipient of a grant.

Throughout our website, we offer links to third party sites. Since we do not control those websites, we encourage you to review their privacy policies as well.
If at any time you wish to stop receiving the Foundation’s electronic communications, you may unsubscribe from that list as explained in each message.
