  1. Your Information

    The Whitefish Community Foundation is committed to maintaining the privacy of our donors and upholds the confidentiality of their personal information. WCF does not share, sell, rent, or trade information about its donors and other contacts, unless required to do so by law.  We also do not share information about our donors or other contacts even with other charitable organizations, including charitable organizations that maintain donor advised funds, endowment funds, etc, with WCF, except when necessary for advising a charity of a donation made to them from a donor-advised fund or donations made to a charity’s Agency Endowment Fund.  The information you provide is used to process and receipt your donation, to invite your attendance at an event, to keep you updated on WCF activities, or to respond to information requests you may have made.  Donor anonymity will be respected if requested and where applicable.
