By using cookies, information is potentially collected without your express knowledge. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies but permit you to change the setting to refuse cookies or to be alerted when cookies are being sent.

Project Impact 180 uses the information it collects through this site to improve its marketing and promotional efforts, to improve its content, and to customize this site’s services, content, and layout. Project Impact 180 may provide the information it collects through this site to third parties who provide services on Project Impact 180’s behalf and, with your permission, to Project Impact 180’s  business partners. Project Impact 180 may use the information it collects through this site to inform you of new services, changes, or promotions.

How Project Impact 180 Shares the Information It Collects

Project Impact 180 understands the importance of privacy and confidentiality to users of this site.  Project Impact 180 may provide the information it collects through this site to third parties who provide services on Project Impact 180's behalf and, with your permission, to Project Impact 180’s business partners. For example, we use one or more third-party financial institutions to process our credit card transactions. They receive the credit card number and other personal information of our donors only to verify credit card numbers and to process credit card transactions in a secure environment. We also occasionally hire other companies to perform limited services on our behalf. We only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service and prohibit them from using that information for any other purpose. Aggregated, depersonalized traffic data is shared with certain advertisers to optimize campaigns.

From time to time, Project Impact 180 may also share donor names and mailing addresses with other reputable nonprofit organizations on a limited basis in exchange for limited access to the names and addresses of their constituents. We have found this is a cost-effective method of reaching additional potential constituents. These organizations will not have continued access to your name and address if you choose to respond to their initial mailing and opt out. We do not share email address data in connection with this list exchange.

We respect our donors’ choices and control over their information. You, as a donor, may, at any time, have your name excluded from any donor list exchange activity.  To ask that your name be excluded from list exchange activity or to otherwise change how Project Impact 180 contacts you, please email us at

Project Impact 180 may disclose information it collects through this site when required to do so by a court, regulatory agency, subpoena, law, regulation, or other body of competent jurisdiction and authority, and for administrative and other purposes that Project Impact 180 deems necessary to maintain, service, and improve its products and services and to protect its rights and property. Finally, if you become involved in any violation of security, violation of this website’s Terms of Use, or violation of any party’s or third party’s rights, Project Impact 180 may release information about you to assist in investigating, resolving, or remediating any such incidents.

Integrity and Security

Use of SSL and Encryption. In order to enhance privacy and security, Project Impact 180 maintains a current Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Encryption Certificate on official Project Impact 180 Sites that permit a donor or supporter to provide their personal data.

You acknowledge, however, that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while Project Impact 180 strives to protect your personal information, Project Impact 180 cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to or from this site.

What Are My Rights?

The Donor Bill of Rights


Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the nonprofit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:


  • To be informed of the organization’s mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.

  • To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization’s governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.

  • To have access to the organization’s most recent financial statements.

  • To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.

  • To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition.

  • To be assured that information about their donation is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.

  • To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.

  • To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors.

  • To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share.

  • To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.
