Donor Bill of Rights

Our goal is to be responsive to the donor’s personal, financial and philanthropic objectives. All donors to The Guelph Community Foundation can expect:

  • To be informed of The Foundation’s mission, of the way The Foundation intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.
  • To be informed of the identity of those serving on The Foundation’s Board of Directors, and to expect the Board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.
  • To have access to The Foundation’s most recent financial statements.
  • To be assured donor gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.
  • To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition, with respect to requests for privacy and anonymity.
  • To be assured that information about the donor’s gift is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.
  • To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.
  • To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.
