Donor Policy

Last Revised: May 6, 2020

International Refugee Assistance Project and its affiliates (“IRAP”, “we”, “us” or “our”) share your concern about the protection of your personal information online.  This Donor Policy is part of our larger Privacy Policy and Terms of Use (“Policy”), located here.

We value our generous community of supporters and strive to maintain the highest level of confidentiality with respect to donor information by adhering to a donor privacy policy (the “Donor Policy”).  Notwithstanding any contradictory terms elsewhere in this Policy, we maintain confidentiality of donors’ personal and financial information with regards to online and offline transactions; all information is used exclusively for internal purposes, and as described in detail in the rest of this Donor Policy.  Access to donor information is restricted to authorized IRAP staff.

Specifically in connection with donations, we collect the following information (“Donor Information”) for internal purposes only: donor name, amount donated, acknowledgement and billing address, email address and payment instrument information as described below.

In order to make a donation, you will be required to provide IRAP information regarding your credit card or other payment instrument (“Payment Instrument”).  You, as a donor, represent and warrant to IRAP that such information is true and that you are authorized to use the applicable Payment Instrument.  You agree that all donation payments are final and will not be refunded unless IRAP, in its sole discretion, agrees to issue a refund.  IRAP uses third-party payment processing partners to charge you through your Payment Instrument for any donations made, and you acknowledge that by making a donation, you are agreeing to any and all applicable terms set forth by our payment partner(s), in addition to the terms of this Donor Policy, which, currently, includes Blackbaud’s terms of service, which you can access by clicking here.

We do not sell or lease Donor Information in any form.  This Donor Information is used exclusively for donor communication and internal purposes, including issuing receipts for donations; thanking donors for their contributions; updating donors with IRAP news, informing donors of new ways to support IRAP’s work, and tracking and analyzing donor data.  Donor Information is also used to comply with all rules and regulations governing IRS 501(c)(3) financial reporting, and reporting requirements related to specific grants and contributions made to IRAP.

IRAP donors can opt out of receiving any donor communications from IRAP at any time. If you would like to do so, or have any other questions regarding the Donor Privacy Policy, please email
