Meds & Food for Kids (MFK) maintains the highest level or respect for the privacy of its donors. In furtherance of our commitment to honor your rights, we have developed this Donor Privacy Policy to guide our volunteers and staff on how they may and may not use your personal information. This policy may be updated.

What information we collect

MFK collects and uses various personal information from donors that includes: amount donated, address, telephone number, donor comments and email address. Tax laws in the United States require MFK to keep contact information and contribution level of donors on file. This information is entered into a secure and encrypted online database. Any paper documents received are destroyed upon data entry.

How we use that information

MFK will never publish, sell, trade, rent or share names (unless released for publication), e-mail or mail addresses, or telephone numbers or our donors.  MFK will use contact information (e-mail telephone number and address) of donors for these purposes only.

  • Distribute receipts for donations
  • Thank donors for their donation
  • Inform donors about upcoming fundraising and other activities of MFK
  • Internal analysis and record keeping
  • Reporting to  relevant U.S. and State agencies (these reports are not for public inspection)
  • Contact donors about changes to this policy

However, properly anonymized donor information is used for promotional and fundraising activities. We allow donors the option to have their name publicly associated with their donation unless the donor explicitly chooses the “anonymous” field when donating online. In all other cases the default is for staff and volunteers to assume all donor forms are published in public lists and by be used in promotional materials while comments sent to us via email, fax or telephone are kept strictly confidential.

Financial information

All access to donor financial information is strictly limited to professional staff who need to access to the data. No data is given to any person, organization or group who does not need to access such data.

MFK only uses online payment processing services with world class security and strong reputations. MFK does not store, or have access to your credit card information, bank account numbers, or other account data sent to those processing services.

MFK uses Blackbaud Merchant Services for online payment processing. Their full privacy policy can be found by visiting:
