The Maine Community Foundation takes donor confidentiality very seriously. We do not sell, rent or exchange lists of names to any individual or organization for any purpose, nor do we share donor names or contact information externally without your permission.
We have the following two categories of privacy.
As an anonymous donor your name will not be shared with staff, board members, other fund advisors or the public beyond essential staff members. However, your name may appear on internal reports or event lists shared with limited staff members without gift amounts or fund information referenced. For any grant recommendation from a donor-advised fund, you can decide whether or not to be anonymous to the grantee organization.
If you decide not to be anonymous, your name and fund name may be shared with staff or board members when a new fund is set up. Your name and fund name could be listed in our annual report or on our website, but no gift amounts would be referenced. If you give to a fund with existing advisors (such as one of our county funds or memorial gifts to a scholarship fund), your name and gift amount will appear on their fund statement. For any grant recommendation from a donor-advised fund, you can decide whether or not to be anonymous to the grantee organization.
