Ashvattha Charity Group is committed to protecting our donors’ privacy. Our donors expect that we will use their support wisely. They also place their trust in us concerning the personal information that they may share with their gifts. We value our donors’ trust and we recognize that maintaining this trust requires us to be transparent and accountable to our supporters and the public. An organization that deals with individuals and information about individuals in its daily operations and fundraising activities must secure that information.
We maintain all records of donations to Ashvattha Charity Group according to the applicable standards for record retention in effect at the time of the donation. All records are maintained in a secure location.
