Privacy Policy


The CHRIS KLUG FOUNDTION (CKF) maintains the highest level of respect for the privacy of its donors. To reflect our commitment to honor your rights, we have developed this Donor Privacy Policy to guide our volunteers and staff on how they may and may not use your personal information. This policy may be updated from time to time.


CKF collects and uses various personal information from donors that includes: amount donated, address, telephone number, donor comments and e-mail address. Tax laws in the United States and the State of Colorado require CKF to keep contact information and contribution level of donors on file.


CKF will never publish, sell, trade, rent or share names (unless released for publication), e-mail or mail addresses, or telephone numbers of our donors. The Foundation will use contact information (e-mail, telephone number and address) of donors for these purposes only:

Distribute receipts for donations

Thank donors for their donation

Inform donors about upcoming fundraising and other activities of CKF

Internal analysis and record keeping

Reporting to relevant U.S. and State agencies (these reports are not for public inspection)

Contact donors about changes to this policy

We assume all donations are not to be publicly announced unless the donor explicitly indicates otherwise. Comments given in donor forms are published in public lists and may be used in promotional materials while comments sent to us via email, fax or telephone are kept strictly confidential. Properly anonymized donor information can be used for promotional and fundraising activities. We allow donors the option to have their name publicly associated with their donation unless the donor explicitly chooses the “anonymous” field when donating online.


All access to donor financial information is strictly limited to professional staff who needs to process those data. No such data are given to any person, organization or group who does not need to access those data. CKF only uses online payment processing services with world class security and strong reputations. CKF does not store, nor does it have access to, your credit card information, bank account numbers, or other account data sent to those processing services. Donations to CKF go to a bank lockbox. This provides the highest possible level of security and confidentiality.


CKF subscribes to the Donor Bill of Rights developed by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), and The Giving Institute.
