Privacy Policy

The Robert Toigo Foundation has created this privacy statement to demonstrate its commitment to privacy and describe this website’s information gathering and dissemination practices.

This web site may disclose personal information when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary in order to conform to the edicts of the law or comply with a legal process involving the web site.

Donor Privacy Policy

The Toigo Foundation is committed to respecting the privacy of our donors. We have developed this privacy policy to ensure our donors that donor information will not be shared with any third party.

Toigo provides this Donor Privacy Policy to make you aware of our privacy policy, and to inform you of the way your information is used. We also provide you with the opportunity to remove your name from (or opt out of) our mailing list, if you desire to do so.

Contact Information

Toigo collects and uses various 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 California require The Toigo Foundation to keep contact information and contribution level of donors on file.

The Toigo Foundation uses donor information to understand donors’ needs and provide excellent service. The Toigo Foundation will never sell, trade, rent or share names (unless released for publication), e-mail or mail addresses, or telephone numbers of our donors. We will list the name of your firm along with our other donors on our website and in printed marketing materials but will remove your name from the list at any time at your request. The Toigo 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 The Toigo Foundation
  • 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

Properly anonymized donor information is used for promotional and fundraising activities. Toigo allows donors the option to have their name publicly associated with their donation unless the donor explicitly chooses to remain “anonymous”.

Financial Information

All access to donor financial information is strictly limited to professional staff of the Foundation whose job requires them to process this data. No such data is given to any person, organization or group who does not need to access those data. Donor records are kept in a secure file cabinet.

To accept contributions via credit card, the Toigo Foundation uses accredited online payment processing services with world-class security and data privacy policies. Unless requested by the donor for the purpose of processing recurring donations, the Toigo Foundation 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.

Communication Preferences

It is our desire to not send unwanted mail or information about the Foundation and our Fellows to our donors. The site allows you to choose to receive updates about Toigo and this site. You may sign up to receive e-mail updates or change the frequency of the e-mails you receive. Subscribing to Toigo e-mails allows the site to notify you about Toigo-related news and events.
