Chicago Coalition for the Homeless has posted this privacy statement to demonstrate a firm, long-standing policy committed to donor privacy.

The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, including information gathered through forms on this website, as well as information received through the mail, over the phone, or in person from our donors and supporters.

Our website’s registration and donation forms require users to give us contact information, such as name and email address. We use donor contact information from these forms to send an electronic newsletter, Action Alerts, and other information about Chicago Coalition for the Homeless. Donor contact information is also used to contact the donor when necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.

We never sell, share or exchange donor email addresses or any other contact information that is given to CCH.

This website contains links to other sites. Please note that www.chicagohomeless.org and the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other websites.

Donor contact information is obtained through donations received through the mail, over the phone, in person, or through our online donation form. Our online donation forms allow donors to support our programs. We collect donors’ contact information, including their mail and email addresses, and phone number. We use this information to send acknowledgements, donation receipt letters, event invitations, and information about the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless’ programs to our donors. A donor’s contact information is also used to get in touch with the donor if necessary. Donors will never receive phone solicitations from the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless. Supporters may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below. Credit card information that is collected is used only to charge a user’s donation. It is never divulged to any outside party.
