Privacy Policy

United Way of Greater Los Angeles values the trust its donors place in the organization and adheres to the highest standards in gathering, using and safeguarding customer information. This includes all of the donor’s personal and gift information. Because of this trust, United Way will not rent or sell any information about its donors.

Within our organization, access to confidential information is limited to those who need it to perform their jobs. We have physical security in our building, restrict access and require passwords to protect our network, applications, files and databases, and we maintain state-of-the-art virus detection software and devices.

We allow access to your information to auditors only as mandated by regulatory requirements. The only other outside party privy to your information, limited only to name and address, is the recipient of any funds contributed by you via the donor choice program in order to allow the recipient agency to thank you for your gift.

Occasionally, we may share our mailing list with other charities whose missions and goals align with ours and might be of interest to you. If you do not wish to participate, you may choose to opt out.

Upon request, we will remove your personal information from our database, except where legislation or regulation requires our retention of it (example, charitable giving history tied to income tax receipts). If you have any questions about United Way’s privacy policies or wish to opt out, please contact [email protected].
