Use of Information - External Use

Sharing FfPA's List of Supporters

The FfPA may, on occasion, share the name and the address of online and offline members and supporters with other like-minded organizations. Exchanging our list with other reputable charitable organizations is the most cost effective way to find new supporters. As part of the FfPA’s exchange policy, other organizations will have access to a shared list for a limited time and will not have continued access to FfPA's list unless an individual voluntarily chooses to respond to their initial mailing. If you prefer not to have your name and address shared in this way, you may request to have your information removed from a shared list at any time by calling (212) 836-4371 . The FfPA will not intentionally disclose any personal information about you (such as your name, street address, telephone number, credit card number or e-mail address) to any third party if you elect to opt out.

Please note: the FfPA does not rent or sell donor lists. The FfPA never shares the information we receive from donors making online contributions via the FfPA website.
