Donor Privacy Policy

Donor information we collect:
Wellstone Action and Wellstone Action Fund collects the following personal information from our donors: names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, gift amounts donated, gift history, and other information provided voluntarily.

Donors may request removal of personally identifiable information from our databases by contacting us at the phone number or e-mail address listed below. To honor requests, we will need the exact information to be removed and information sufficient for us to identify the type of communication received from us.

Donor information is used for internal purposes only, with exception of pre-approved list exchanges with other organizations and entities. Only staff of Wellstone Action and Wellstone Action Fund have on-going access to donor records.  

Wellstone Action and Wellstone Action Fund does not sell donor information. Occasionally we conduct one-time access list exchanges with other organizations and entities with similar missions. All donors may opt out of list exchanges at any time.
