Personal contact information we collect and what we do with it

When you are making a donation, purchasing a product, expressing an interest in referring a wish child, contributing to our guest book, or subscribing to our online newsletter, we ask you for personal contact information, including your name, mailing address, phone number, and e-mail address. We will use this contact information to provide you with information or resources you have requested, such as information about the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a receipt, or a financial report, or we will use your information to contact you to clarify or verify other information, such as an order you placed or a donation you made.

We will not add your name and contact information to any mailing lists without your express permission. In other words, we will always ask you before adding you to a mailing list. If we do not ask, you will not be added. If you have asked to be added to one of our mailing lists, such as our e-mail newsletter list or regular mailing list, then you may receive from us news about the Make-A-Wish Foundation and information on how you can support the organization's mission.

Personal contact information is not shared with any organization outside of the Make-A-Wish Foundation and our agents (reputable companies we use for services, such as shipping Make-A-Wish Foundation products or sending Make-A-Wish Foundation mail). We have contracts to protect your privacy with all of our agents.

Other contact information we collect and what we do with it

In some instances, we ask for contact information for people other than yourself – for example, e-mail addresses of friends to whom you wish to send a copy of one of our pages or the mailing address of someone you wish to have us notify of a donation you have made. Such contact information is not added to any mailing list nor is the information shared with any other organization. Collecting such information for our own use is called prospecting. The Make-A-Wish Foundation does not prospect.

How to view or change your information

With the exception of credit card numbers, which are not retained, you can view and request changes to all the information you have given us, including any mailing lists you may be on, by contacting us one of two ways:
