Donor Bill of Rights

 

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 ensure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in Corban University and the various programs and projects it supports, we declare that all donors have these rights:

  1. To be informed of Corban’s mission, of the way the University intends to use donated resources and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.
  2. To be informed of the identity of those serving on the University’s governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.
  3. To have access to Corban’s most recent financial statements.
  4. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.
  5. To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition.
  6. To be assured that information about their donation is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.
  7. To expect that all relationships with individuals representing Corban University will be professional in nature.
  8. To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the University or hired solicitors.
  9. To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from the University's mailing lists.
  10. To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.

The Donor Bill of Rights was initiated by the American Association of Fund Raising Counsel (AAFRC), Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). It has been modified to acknowledge the unique heritage, mission and values of Corban University.
