1. What Information Do We Collect?

The Organization collects both Personal Information and Non-Personal Information about our users.

Personal Information:

 “Personal Information” is any information that identifies you as an individual or is linked or linkable to you as an individual.  This includes information such as your name, email address, mailing address, telephone number, date of birth, demographic information, and certain financial information. We may collect this information directly from you when you provide it voluntarily, such as through forms, donations, surveys, or online transactions. We may also collect this information from publicly available sources, such as social media profiles, to the extent permitted by law.

If you make a donation through Our website, we may collect certain financial information from you, such as your credit card number, expiration date, and security code. We may also collect your billing address and bank account details for recurring donations. This information is necessary to process your donations securely and efficiently.

If you would like more information about what Personal Information we collect, would like us to stop using your Personal Information, or simply wish to unsubscribe from our mailing list, please contact us at

Please note that we do not intentionally request or collect Personal Information from, or direct this Site to, people under 13 years old or people outside of the United States of America. If you believe that you have (or if you are a parent/guardian of a minor and believe that your child has) submitted Personal Information to the Organization without your consent and you would like this information restricted or removed, please contact us at the email address noted above.

Non-Personal Information:

“Non-Personal Information” is information that does not identify you as an individual, such as website usage data, browser type, device type, IP address, clickstream data, and referral URLs. We collect this information automatically using “cookies” and other technologies that operate automatically when you visit our website or use our online services. We use this information to give our Site visitors and users a more relevant experience and to help us make technical improvements. If you do not want us to collect information using cookies, you can disable this function in your browser.

We use both Personal and Non-Personal Information in support of the Organization’s mission. Uses may include monitoring traffic and content on the Site, contacting users of the Site about various programs and activities, facilitating educational, training, and volunteer opportunities for users of the Site, and requesting and facilitating donations.
