  2. If you designate your donation for a particular program or purpose, we will use it for that program or purpose.
  3. Transparency is important. You have the right to see our financial statements and know who is on our board and staff.
  4. We are good stewards of the dollars entrusted to us.
  5. We will not share, rent, or sell your personal information.
  6. We will recognize your generosity by the name(s) you prefer. If you wish to be anonymous, we will honor your wish.
