The DC Bar Foundation collects personal information from donors that includes: gift amounts, mailing addresses, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, and donor comments. Tax laws require us to keep the contact information and contribution history of our donors on file.


The DC Bar Foundation will never sell, trade, or share the names, mailing addresses, telephone numbers, or e-mail addresses of our donors. We will only use the contact information of our donors for the following purposes:

  • Distributing gift receipts

  • Thanking and recognizing donors for their gifts

  • Informing donors about upcoming events and activities

  • Internal analysis and record-keeping

  • Contact donors about changes to this policy


We give donors the option to have their name publicly associated with their donation unless the donor explicitly chooses the “anonymous” field when donating online. Properly anonymized donor information can be used for promotional and fundraising activities.


Access to donor financial information is strictly limited to the professional staff that process such data. The DC Bar Foundation only uses online payment processing services with strong security platforms and reputations. We do not store, nor do we have access to your credit card information, bank account numbers, or other account data sent to those processing services.


The DC Bar Foundation subscribes to the Donor Bill of Rights developed by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP).
