The Coachella Valley Rescue Mission 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.

The Coachella Valley Rescue Mission 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

The Coachella Valley Rescue Mission 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 Coachella Valley Rescue Mission to keep contact information and contribution level of donors on file.

The Coachella Valley Rescue Mission uses donor information to understand donors’ needs and provide excellent service. The Coachella Valley Rescue Mission 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 remove your name from the list at any time at your request. The Coachella Valley Rescue Mission will use contact information (e-mail, telephone number and address) of donors for these purposes only:

Properly anonymized donor information is used for promotional and fundraising activities. The Coachella Valley Rescue Mission allows donors the option to have their name 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 and consultants of the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission 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 on a secure server and in a secure file cabinet.

To accept contributions via credit card, the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission 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 Coachella Valley Rescue Mission 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.
