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:

of the way the organization intends to use
