We respect your right to privacy. None of the information we collect is passed on to other parties, except when required as part of the business/donor services we provide for you, or as required under USA law.
We collect no data about you save for that captured by a cookie to provide us with information about site navigation. When you create a profile, we collect your computer's IP address.
We will not retain any details that you provide, except for what is required by registration, liability, visitor, subscription and contact forms used by this website or by WOMF. The information gathered will never be disclosed to third parties. Customers are free to opt out of the news or notification services by following the instructions on the bottom of each communication or by direct contact to us via email, phone or this website.
WOMF collects and uses various personal information from donors that includes: amount donated, address, telephone number, donor comments and e-mail address. Tax laws in the United States and the State of Washington require WOMF to keep contact information and contribution level of donors on file.
WOMF will never publish, sell, trade, rent or share names (unless released for publication), e-mail or mail addresses, or telephone numbers of our donors. WOMF will use contact information (e-mail, telephone number and address) of donors for these purposes only:
*Distribute receipts for donations
*Thank donors for their donation
*Inform donors about upcoming fundraising and other activities of WOMF
*Internal analysis and record keeping
*Reporting to relevant U.S. and State agencies (these reports are not for public inspection)
*Contact donors about changes to this policy
However, properly anonymized donor information is used for promotional and fundraising activities. We allow donors the option to have their name publicly associated with their donation. In all other cases the default is for staff and volunteers to assume all donations are not to be publicly announced unless the donor explicitly indicates otherwise. Comments given in donor forms are published in public lists and may be used in promotional materials while comments sent to us via email, fax or telephone are kept strictly confidential.
All access to donor financial information is strictly limited to professional staff that needs to process those data. No such data are given to any person, organization or group who does not need to access those data.
WOMF only uses online payment processing services with world class security and strong reputations. WOMF does not store, nor does it have access to, your credit card information, bank account numbers, or other account data sent to those processing services.

WOMF subscribes to the Donor Bill of Rights.
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 assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the not-for-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare 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 given.
To receive appropriate acknowledgment and recognition.
To be assured that information about their donations 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.
The text of this statement in its entirety was developed by the American Association of Fund-Raising Counsel (AAFRC), Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), and National Society of Fund Raising Executives (NSFRE).
This policy has been unanimously made a Resolution of the Board of Directors of WOMF. This policy affirms that no director, officer, employee or any other person who in good faith reports misconduct or a violation shall suffer harassment, retaliation or adverse employment consequence.
This policy is also intended to encourage and enable employees and others to raise legitimate concerns within the organization before seeking resolution outside the organization.
Additionally, no employee shall be adversely affected because they refuse to carry out a directive which constitutes corporate fraud, or is a violation of state or federal law, or is a violation of the policies of WOMF that relate to illegal, immoral or unbiblical conduct or activities.
If any person knows of or has a suspicion about misconduct, dishonesty or fraud, the Executive Director or President should be contacted. If the alleged wrong doing concerns the Executive Director, then any other officer or a member of the Board of Director of WOMF should be notified instead.
If the Executive Director, President or other officer of the organization receives information about misconduct, dishonesty or fraud, they shall inform the Board, which shall determine the procedure for investigating and addressing all credible allegations.
-The privacy and reputation of individuals who come forward with suspected misconduct, dishonest, fraud and/or “whistle-blowing" will be respected.
-There will no punishment or other retaliation for the reporting of misconduct under this policy.
-Any employee who retaliates against someone who has reported a violation in good faith is subject to discipline up to and including termination of employment.
-As a principle consideration anyone accused of misconduct is, under law, considered innocent until proven guilty, so any actual misconduct that is discovered and/or reported will be investigated, and after which the proper authorities will act.
-If the person providing the information requests anonymity, this request will be respected unless doing so will impede any investigation.
-If misconduct is suspected or there is credible evidence toward that outcome, a complainant is expected to act on it quickly so that the complaint can be resolved.
-Subject to legal constraints the complainant will receive information about the outcome of any investigations.
WOMF shall retain as a part of the records of the Board any such complaints or concerns for a period of at least seven years.
For purposes of this policy, the definition of misconduct, dishonesty, and fraud includes but is not limited to:
-Acts which are inconsistent with organization policy
-Theft or other misappropriation of organization assets
-Misstatements or other irregularities in organization records
-Deliberate reporting of incorrect financial statements
-Misuse of organization resources
-Illegal, immoral, or unbiblical activities
-Forgery or alteration of documents
-Any other form of fraud
WOMF reserves the right to modify or amend this policy at any time as it may deem necessary.
This policy is established to assist in resolving conflict of interest issues.
Any possible conflict of interest on the part of any board member should be disclosed to other board members and made a matter of record, either through an annual procedure, or when the interest becomes a matter of board action. Any board member having a conflict of interest, or possible conflict on any matter should not vote or use his or her personal influence on the matter, and he or she should not be counted in determining a quorum for the meeting, even where permitted by law. The minutes of the meeting should reflect that a disclosure was made, the abstention from voting, and the quorum situation.
The foregoing requirements should not be construed as preventing the board member from briefly stating his or her position in the matter, nor from answering pertinent questions of other board members.
