Donor Bill of Rights

Donor Bill of Rights

The FSCJ Foundation is committed to the service of our donors as well as our students. Accordingly, we actively subscribe to The Donor Bill of Rights created by the American Association of Fund Raising Counsel (AAFRC), the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).  If you have questions regarding the Donor Bill of Rights, please call the Foundation at (904) 632-3237. 

Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the non-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights: 

To be informed of the organization's mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of our capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes. 

To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization's governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities. 

To have access to the organization's most recent financial statements. 

To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given. 

To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition. 

To be assured that information about their donation is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law. 

To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature. 

To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization, or hired solicitors. 

To know that the organization will never share your name or any other personal information with any other organization outside the College and the Foundation. 

To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.
