Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic maintains the highest level of respect for the privacy
of our donors and we do not sell, rent, trade or share our donor list with any other organization.
In addition, our organization supports 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 assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the
general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the not-for-profit
organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:
- To be informed of the organization's mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources,
and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.
- To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization's governing board, and to expect the board
to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.
- To have access to the organization's most recent financial statements.
- To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.
- To receive appropriate acknowledgment and recognition.
- To be assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and with confidentiality to
the extent provided by law.
- To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor
will be professional in nature.
- To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired
- To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend
- To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.
The text of the Donor Bill of Rights statement in its entirety was developed by the Association of Fundraising
Professionals (AFP), Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), Council for Advancement and Support of
