The wording in this section is meant to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, which gives parents control over the information that websites are allowed to collect from their children.

KMOC

  • WILL NOT knowingly collect, use, or distribute to third parties personally identifiable information without prior verifiable parental consent.

  • WILL respond more than once directly to a specific request from a child (such as in the case where a child requests a newsletter subscription) and will not re-contact the child for other purposes. KMOC will use our best efforts to provide parental notification, which will include the nature and intended use as well as an opportunity for the parent to prevent the use of the information and participation in the activity.
  • WILL NOT entice the child to divulge more information than is needed to participate in any activity, game, or service.
  • WILL provide the parent a description of the specific type of a personally identifiable information collected from their child upon request.

Donor Bill of Rights

KMOC agrees with the Donor Bill of Rights, which was created by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), and The Giving Institute: Leading Consultants to Non-Profits.

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, with the perfect example being Christ Himself. 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 organization and causes they are asked to support, KMOC will follow specific guidelines as outlined below.

KMOC declares that all donors have the right….

  • 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 given.
  • To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition.
  • 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 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.
