The Creative Arts Center of Dallas maintains the highest level of respect for the privacy of its donors. In furtherance of 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.

What information we collect

CAC collects personal information from donors, including: amount donated, address, telephone number, donor comments and e-mail address. Tax laws in the United States and the State of Texas require CAC to keep contact information and contribution level of donors on file.

How we use that information

CAC 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 Center 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 Center
    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

While CAC maintains the confidentiality of all donor information, we publish the names of donors by category of giving in our annual newsletter, fund raising campaign and special events materials. We allow donors the option not to have their name publicly associated with their donation or to explicitly choose being recognized as “anonymous” when donating. In all other cases the default is to assume all donations may be publicly announced.

Financial information

All access to donor financial information is strictly limited to professional staff needing to process that data. No data are given to any person, organization or group who does not need to access this data. CAC only uses online payment processing services with world class encryption and strong reputations. We do not store in the office, nor do we have access to, your credit card information, bank account numbers or other account data sent to those processing services.
