The Mariners’ Museum and Park is committed to protecting the privacy of our donors. We may collect personal data about donors for a number of reasons:
Such personal information may include: name, address, phone number, email address and credit card number when a donor voluntarily provides it to us. In addition, The Mariners’ Museum and Park keeps a record of each donor’s giving history. This information is kept on file for IRS purposes and is also used by the Development Department to analyze overall giving patterns in order to make more accurate budget projections.
Where appropriate, and with the knowledge and consent of the donor, the Museum and Park may publicly recognize the receipt and purpose of an individual gift. However, unless desired by the donor, museum and park staff will not disclose the amount of such gifts, except where required by law. Data on donors and donation amounts may be aggregated and stripped of identifying information for reporting purposes (including grant applications and government filings) without the explicit consent of the donors. We do compile an Annual Donor Listing every year by giving categories.
Office policies are in place to safeguard donor information, including:
