Franciscan Connection

-DONOR RIGHTS & PRIVACY POLICY-

We are truly blessed by the gifts of time, talent and treasures by our donors, volunteers and benefactors. Our ministry would never be possible without you. Our donor list includes local businesses, churches, and organizations, as well as members of our broader Franciscan family.

We wish to be good stewards of your generosity, so our mailings are limited to just a few each year. We send newsletters out to the local community primarily to keep you up-to-date

on our ministry here in south St. Louis. Even if you cannot make a financial contribution, we always hope that you can spread the word about our efforts.

Email is a much more cost-effective means of communication. It also allows us to share timely information about special events and volunteer opportunities.

We believe that you have a right to privacy  regarding your contributions to the Franciscan Connection and its ministries. Therefore, we do not sell, trade or lease our donor mailing list or contact information. All mailings and emails from our office will be clearly labeled with the Franciscan Connection name and return address.

All personal donations remain private. Foundation, church, corporate and organization support may be acknowledged in our bi-annual newsletters with the permission of the donor.

We realize, especially in these tough economic times, that our benefactors have many worthy causes to support. Though we hate to lose you as a friend, please feel free to have your name

removed from our database.

We don't have a fancy "unsubscribe" service, but you can simply drop us a note with your request.

You can always join up again later.  In the meantime, please keep us in your prayers.
