Donor Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us.


This privacy policy is designed to explain our practices for collecting, disclosing and protecting the personal information of our donors received through our website, the phone, email, mail and any other medium. GPM is committed to protecting the privacy of our supporters and does not collect information about you, other than as described below. By submitting information to GPM or to any of its staff, you consent to the terms and conditions of this policy. For GPM’s Website Privacy Policy, please click here.


What constitutes personal information?

“Donor personal information” is any information that identifies donors—such as their names, addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses.

GPM collects donor information in the following ways:
  • GPM may collect donors’ names, mailing addresses and email addresses in response to inquiries from donors submitted on the website, in person, by phone or email.

  • GPM may collect donors’ names, mailing addresses, email addresses and other contact information if they register for an event GPM organizes.

  • GPM may collect donors’ names, email addresses, telephone numbers, information and billing addresses when donors make a contribution on the GPM website, over the phone or by mailing in a check.

GPM uses donor information in the following ways:
  • GPM may use donor personal information to analyze overall giving patterns, make more accurate budget projections, understand donors’ interests in our mission, and update donors on the organization’s plans and activities. This information is shared on a confidential and need-to-know basis with staff, board members, volunteers and consultants of GPM.

  • GPM will use donor personal information, when necessary, to comply with the law (such as Internal Revenue Service requirements), when acting in good-faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to the requirements of the law or to comply with legal processes required of GPM. GPM may also use donor personal information to protect and defend GPM’s rights.

  • GPM may use donor personal information to act in urgent circumstances such as a security or medical emergency during donors’ international travel with GPM—in order to protect the personal safety of the donors and others.

  • GPM will use donor personal information to protect against potential fraud. For example, GPM may verify with third parties the information collected in the course of processing a gift, event registration or other donation. If a donor uses a credit or debit card on the GPM website, GPM may use card authorization and fraud screening services to verify that the card information and address matches the information that was supplied to GPM and that the card being used has not been reported lost or stolen.

Sharing of Your Personal Information and Protecting Your Privacy

GPM will never rent, trade or sell donors’ e-mail addresses. GPM may on occasion share donors’ names and mailing addresses with its service providers (such as those who provide donor research services, mailing services and security services to GPM travelers). GPM may on occasion share donors’ names and mailing addresses with organizations that donors might have an interest in supporting. Such service providers and organizations must sign binding agreements outlining the specific purpose for which the information will be used—such as a one-time mailing or providing security services during travel.

  • GPM will not send mailings to GPM donors on behalf of other organizations.

  • Except as described in this policy, GPM does not otherwise disclose donor personal information to any third parties.

  • Donors have the right to remain anonymous. All requests for anonymity will be strictly honored.

  • Donors have the right, upon request, to promptly review any donor personal information that GPM has collected about them.


If donors prefer that their names and mailing addresses not be shared with other organizations, they should send GPM an opt-out request via e-mail to Donors, both online and off-line, may opt-out of specific or all correspondence with GPM at any time by contacting GPM at, or sending a letter to the address below.
