The Donor Bill of Rights
Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the
common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the
quality of life. To ensure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the

in the nonprofit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare
that all donors have these rights:
I. To be informed of the organizationís mission, of the way the organization
intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations
effectively for their intended purposes.
II. To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organizationís

III. To have access to the organizationís most recent financial statements.
IV. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were
V. To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition.
VI. To be assured that information about their donation is handled with respect
and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.
VII. To expect that all relationships with individuals representing
organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.
VIII. To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees
of the organization or hired solicitors.
IX. To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists
that an organization may intend to share.
X. To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt,
truthful and forthright answers.
The Tipton County Foundation does not sell,
loan, or trade their donors' personal or contact information with anyone else,
nor send mailings on behalf of individuals, causes, or organizations that do not
have a fund established in the Foundation.
