A Donor Bill of Rights

We greatly value our donors. You have many choices of where to share your contributions. We consider it a true honor that you make Greensboro Urban Ministry one of your charities of choice.

That’s why earlier this year, Greensboro Urban Ministry’s Board of Directors formally adopted a Donor Bill of Rights as a guideline for how the agency will value and protect our supporters. This decision was reviewed and recommended by the Fundraising Committee and approved unanimously by both the committee and the full Board.

Our organization has supported and followed these guidelines for years. Our staff and Board, however, wanted to create a formal record of our policies and practices related to fundraising.

A Donor Bill of Rights was developed and adopted by the American Association of Fund-Raising Counsel (now the Giving Institute), the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) and the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP).

Part of valuing our relationship with you is protecting it. We seek to be transparent, timely and forthright in our communications with you. We want you to know about our programs and services, ask questions and feel confident that you will receive the information you need to make important decisions about your charitable giving. We want you to know that we will not share information about you or your donations. Our organization never shares your information for mailing lists.

Thank you for your support.
