IMPORTANT TAX INFORMATION
IT4Causes is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Donations to IT4Causes are tax-deductible (please check with your tax advisor as appropriate).
IT4Causes collects and uses personal information from donors, including amount donated, address, telephone number, donor comments, and email address. United States and the Commonwealth of Virginia tax laws require IT4Causes to keep contact information and contribution level of donors on file.
Definition of personal information
Personal information is any information that can be used to distinguish, identify, or contact a specific individual. Personal information does not include business contact information and certain publicly available information, such as names, addresses and telephone numbers as published in telephone directories. We do not consider the acknowledgement of an individual’s name in a donor category in our annual report or other donor recognition materials to be personal information. The opportunity to make contributions anonymously can be found in all solicitation materials.
When an individual uses home contact information as business contact information as well, we consider that the contact information provided is business contact information, and it is not subject to protection as personal information.
How information is used
IT4Causes will never publish, sell, trade, rent or share names (unless released for publication); email or mail addresses; comments; or telephone numbers of our donors. IT4Causes does not engage in telemarketing. IT4Causes will use contact information (email, telephone number, and address) of donors only for the following purposes:
- Thank and give receipts for donations
- Tell donors about upcoming fundraising and other activities of IT4Causes
- Internal analysis and record keeping
- Report to relevant U.S. and State agencies
- Contact donors about changes to this policy
IT4Causes publishes the names of donors in our annual reports and fundraising campaign and special events materials. Donors have the option of giving anonymously with all solicitation materials.
Access to donor financial information is strictly limited to professional staff who need to process those data. No data are given to any person, organization, or group who does not need access to that data.
IT4Causes only uses online payment processing services with world class security and strong reputations. We do not store, nor do we have access to, your credit card information, bank account numbers, or other account data sent to those processing services.
IT4Causes may occasionally send you invitations from another organization doing a benefit for IT4Causes through a third-party mail house. You may opt-out of having your information used for these purposes, or from receiving any communication from us, by calling or writing.
