Personal Information
Your personal information is collected on a voluntary basis when you complete the “Contact Us” form, sign up for the newsletter, fill out a “Take Action” form or contribute through the donation form. You may be asked for, as appropriate, your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, and credit card information. You can refuse to supply personal identification information, though it may prevent you from participating in certain activities on the website.

Our website is not intended for use by children under age 13.  We do not knowingly collect information from children under age 13.

Donor Privacy Policy
AFC respects the privacy of our donors and their choice not to have personal information shared with others. We do not and will not sell, rent, or trade donor information (collected online or offline) to organizations that use such information for commercial purposes. Occasionally we may make donor mailing lists available for one time use by selected nonprofits in return for donor lists from those organizations. This helps AFC continue to grow. Our donors may instruct that we exclude their information from any lists that we share. All such requests — directed to Elisa Clements, eclements@federationforchildren.orgor via mail to 1020 19thStreet, NW Suite 675 Washington, DC 20036 — will be implemented as soon as possible.
