Donor Privacy Policy

Think Small is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization. Protecting the privacy of our donors is extremely important to us, and our privacy policy is available on request. We comply with both the letter and spirit of all public disclosure requirements, and strictly hold all private information confidential.

Think Small accepts gifts from donors that wish to remain anonymous, including anonymity in the annual report to the community.

Think Small will discontinue contacting any person upon their oral or written request. A “do not contact” record will be maintained and upheld.
