Donor Privacy Policy


As a United Way agency, you have entrusted us with your charitable gifts and personal information.  We thank you for your trust and promise to protect both your charitable investment and personal information in keeping with the highest ethical standards.

Our promise means that we do not sell or trade donor information to anyone.  We use the personal information that you or your employer have provided to us only for the intended business purpose – to manage your charitable gift in keeping with donor intention.

Personal information that we may collect:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Email Address

  • Phone Number

On some pages, you can submit information about other people. For example, if you donate a gift in memory of someone, we ask for the name of the individual.  

United Way of Walworth County may recognize the receipt and purpose of donations. United Way of Walworth County will ask consent and honor requests from donors who choose to remain anonymous.

Within United Way of Walworth County, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in keeping with industry standards and practices, and we review and adjust these safeguards regularly in response to advances in technology.  We limit access to confidential information to those employees who need it to perform their jobs and hold those employees to a strict code of ethics.

Our contracts with third-party service providers who help us with administration, data storage, printing, and other services have strict confidentiality and security provisions that hold them to United Way of Walworth County’s privacy standards.  United Way of Walworth County allows access to your information to auditors and other third parties only as mandated by regulatory requirements.

United Way of Walworth County’s Privacy Policy extends online.  Online donations are transmitted to a secured server using encryption technology.  If you choose to send United Way of Walworth County an e-mail, we may retain the contents of your e-mail message, the reply, and your e-mail address as part of ongoing customer service efforts.  United Way of Walworth County reserves the right to contact you after you have contacted us and may send future e-mails and/or surveys to you about United Way of Walworth County.  You may notify United Way of Walworth County via e-mail if you wish to discontinue electronic communication.
