  1. What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information
    Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, e-mail address, format preference (HTML vs. Text), address, interests, and/or other similar information.
    • When you contribute money online: Federal tax law requires us to collect and report some information (such as your name, address, and the amount of your contribution; your credit card number may be collected for donations but is not stored or shared). You may remove your name and personal information from our mailing lists at any time by contacting Donor mailing information may be shared with other organizations unless you indicate otherwise.
    • If you sign-up for one of our mailing lists: If you sign-up to receive information we will collect your name and mailing address. Both mailings will be sent to you in a plain brown envelope with our P.O. Box as the return address. You may remove your name and mailing address from mailing lists at any time by contacting
  2. Will You Share My Name With Other Organizations?
    We derive a portion of our funding from our donor family. One important way of finding new members is to exchange mailing lists with other like-minded organizations. We will never sell or exchange mailing lists with a corporation or an organization looking to sell you something. Exchanging lists with other organizations keeps our costs down, and lets us spend a larger portion of our budget on our programs rather than mailing costs.

    If you do not want us to exchange your name with other non-profit organizations and you object to these uses, simply let us know and we will remove your personal information from any of our list shares. This pertains to all of our databases lists. You can unsubscribe from our email list by sending an email request with "unsubscribe" in the subject line to
