We value our nonprofit clients and we take their privacy seriously. Charity Valet respects the privacy of the personal information that we are privileged to acquire. Our commitment to privacy includes how we obtain, use, protect, and share information.
Charity Valet collects and uses personal information such as names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses when a nonprofit client provides it to us.

We will not sell, trade or share a nonprofit client's personal information with anyone else or with any other organization. Charity Valet keeps a record of each nonprofit client's disbursements. This information is kept on file for IRS purposes and is also used by Charity Valet internally to analyze overall giving patterns for future projections and statistical analysis.
Unless otherwise specifically indicated, the presence of information on the Site regarding any nonprofit organization does not mean that Charity Valet endorses or supports that organization. The information provided on each profile is provided by the nonprofit organization itself or obtained from publicly available data. Charity Valet does not guarantee the accuracy of any such data or make any representations or warranties with regard to any organization profile in our database. An organizational profile, as viewed or printed from this system, is not intended to be a user's complete source of information regarding any organization. Rather, it can serve as a way for a user to initially screen an organization and decide if that organization warrants further examination. Whenever possible, Charity Valet will attempt to provide explanation for any data discrepancies. If prospective clients or donors have further questions about an organization, they may either contact the organization directly or contact Charity Valet.
