What personal data we collect and why we collect it

When you donate by using your PayPal account or a credit card, the transaction is handled by PayPal and your financial data is not visible to us. We receive and retain your name, email address, date of donation, amount of your donation, and whether you used PayPal or check. We use this information so we can send you a donation receipt after the close of the year.

If you wish to have your information, as described in the previous paragraph, removed from our website, send a message to us using the form on our Contact page. After your information is removed from the website, the Treasurer will maintain information as required by IRS rules, but not on this website or server.
