Communities Foundation of Texas is committed to respecting and protecting the privacy of our fund holders. We will not sell, share, or trade our donors’ names or personal information with any other organization or entity.

This policy applies to all information received by Communities Foundation of Texas, both online and offline, on our Donor Portal, as well as any electronic, written, or oral communications. Donor records and other donor information are highly confidential and protected by this policy. We collect and maintain the following types of donor information:

Personal information, including name, organization, complete address, phone number, email address, and biographical information;

Information about your gift(s) and grant(s), including the intended purpose and amount.

CFT collects and uses your information to complete donor transactions, communicate with you, provide Foundation updates, honor you and your generosity as appropriate, and deliver the services you have requested.
