The Thomas Jefferson Foundation will not trade, share or sell a donor’s personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations.

The only time where donor names leave the Foundation is to a private company for the purpose of internally modeling our donor preferences. There is a strict confidentiality agreement and those names are not shared with anyone else. There is no way that our donors would be solicited by any other group through this modeling process. The donor names are not shared, traded, or sold.
