Donor Promise Policy

Standard Of Living Augmentation Donor Pledge Policy

Standard Of Living Augmentation (SOLA) and the staff members of the

Development and Community Relations departments subscribe and adhere

to the Donor Bill of Rights, Association of Fundraising Professionals’ (AFP)

Code of Ethical Principles and Standards of Professional Practice and

disclosure about our Storage of Donor Information. Any release of

information about a SOLA client, employee, or donor (corporate, private

foundation or individual) must be approved by the CEO. The release of

information may include but is not limited to electronic and printed form

within or outside SOLA. Any contact with SOLA donors is to be approved

by the CEO prior to making the contact, be it for soliciting a financial

contribution, event support or any other purpose. This includes requests of

cash or in-kind donations of goods or services. All donations must be

processed through the Community Liaison Department so that proper

coordination of solicitations occurs and so that solicitation, tracking and

follow-up procedures may be initiated.

Storage of Donor Information

Donor information is stored and managed in the SOLA Community

Liaison Department’s database. We permit only authorized employees, who

are trained in the proper handling of donor information, to have access to

this information. Employees who violate our Donor Pledge will be subject to

our normal disciplinary process. This policy is being coordinated in

compliance with SOLA’s HIPAA policy that is enforced by SOLA’s HIPAA

Privacy Specialist/Environmental and Safety Manager.

The Donor Bill of Rights

The Donor Bill of Rights was created by the American Association of Fund

Raising Counsel (AAFRC—now known as the Giving Institute), the

Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), the Association of

Fundraising Professionals, and the Council for Advancement and Support

of Education (CASE). It has been endorsed by numerous organizations.

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 the

nonprofit organizations and causes they are asked to support,

SOLA declares 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 its 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


 To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognitions

 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 have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists

that an organization may intend to share.

 To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive

prompt, truthful and forthright answers.
