Friends of Hope International takes the privacy of its donors very seriously. Personal information of donors acquired by Friends of Hope International is never sold. Personal information acquired through our church speakers, website, radio campaigns, television, print advertisements in any publications, and fundraising events is never rented or exchanged. Furthermore, any information acquired through our phone representatives or planned giving specialists is never shared with anyone outside of our organization and will be held in the strictest confidence. Personal information of our donors acquired from lists already in circulation is occasionally rented to or exchanged with other organizations. If a person becomes a donor of Friends of Hope International in response to a mailing of ours, they are given the opportunity to have their name excluded from rental or exchange by checking a box at the end of the written statement of privacy and confidentiality and submitting this to us.
