Fundraising Well — October 2010

Fundraising Well — October 2010: "s Your Organization’s Constituent Information Being Shared?

It’s generally understood that information in your constituent database — especially data such as giving history and social security numbers, is private. But do you know what happens when a trustee, who happens to be in sales, calls your data entry staff and asks for a list of names, addresses, and phone numbers of constituents within a specific ZIP code? Perhaps the data entry staff member wants to please the trustee, who is a major donor, and emails him a spreadsheet of 250 constituents from your database."
