  • be informed of the organization's mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes,
  • 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,
  • have access to the organization's most recent financial statements,
  • be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given,
  • receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition,
  • be assured that information about their donation is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law,
  • expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature,
  • be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors,
  • have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share, and
  • feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.
