Office of Advancement Privacy Policy

All information concerning donors and prospective donors, including their names, addresses and telephone numbers, the names of their beneficiaries, the amount of their gift, etc., shall be kept strictly confidential by Wells College, its staff and volunteers, unless permission is obtained from donors to release such information.

Wells College is committed to respecting the privacy of our donors and prospective donors. We value the trust of those we deal with and of the public, and we recognize that maintaining this trust requires us to be transparent and accountable in maintaining the confidentially of the personal information that you choose to share with us.

This privacy policy statement outlines the principles that Wells College applies in order to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of your personal information. The types of donor/prospective donor information we collect and maintain are as follows:

  • Contact information: name, address, employment address, telephone number and email address
  • Giving information including the names of their beneficiaries, the allocation and amount of their gift, etc.
  • Information on events attended, publications received and special requests for program information
  • Information provided by the donor in the form of comments and suggestions

Wells College uses donors' information to understand their interests in its mission and to update them on the organization's plans and activities. It is shared with staff, board members, volunteers and consultants only on a "need-to-know" basis. Any other sharing of donor/prospective donor information is done at the discretion of the Director of Alumnae and Alumni Engagement. The College also assures donors that their names and addresses are not sold, rented or leased to any commercial third party unless permission has been granted.

Donors may request that personal contact information (phone and mailing address) be kept private and not shared with volunteers or other entities unless lawfully required for customary non-profit business. To do so, please contact the Office of Alumnae and Alumni Engagement at alumoffice@wells.edu or 315.364.3200.

If you have comments or questions about the Wells College’s donor-privacy policy, please email Michele Vollmer, Director of Advancement Services,  or call 315-364-3200.
