Donor Privacy Policy

The Farnsworth Art Museum collects and uses identifying information from persons donating to the Museum. 
By Board policy the museum does not sell, trade, rent or share names, mailing and email addresses or telephone numbers with any other entity. Promotional material may contain identifying donor information only by signed release. Donor information collected by the museum will be used in the following ways:
  • Creation of donation receipts and “thank you’s”
  • Informing donors of upcoming events and other museum activities
  • Internal analysis, trending and record keeping
  • Future mailings and fundraising notifications
  • Donor comments may be used in promotional materials with permission of the donor.
Financial Information provided by donors and general public:
Authorized museum personnel only may access personal and financial information possessed by the museum. The museum utilizes a third-party encrypted payment processing service and credit card related information is gathered only to complete the transaction. In instances where bank account numbers or other data are submitted to us, that data is held within secure files within the museum. To accommodate requests for regular and recurring gifts the museum will obtain written authorization from the donor to store their confidential payment information.
