Please take a moment to review our privacy policy, including those parts that depend on whether you deal with us directly or through an authorized representative.


Obtaining information

The Maplewood Foundation obtains personal information about you in the following ways:

  • From applications or forms (examples include name, address, social security number)
  • From transactional activity (for example, contributions and grant recommendations)
  • From other sources with your consent or with the consent of your authorized representative

We may use this information to process transactions; to respond to inquiries from you or your representative and to develop, offer, and deliver new programs and services.

Protecting information

The strong protection of sensitive information is a foundation of our donors’ trust and a standard practice. We employ extensive physical, electronic, and procedural protection mechanisms.

The Maplewood Foundation does not sell or rent donor names or information to any firm or nonprofit organization, nor share it any firm or nonprofit organization for their marketing or fundraising purposes, unless you or your authorized representative explicitly asks us to do so. You do not have to contact us to benefit from these protections; they apply automatically to all our donors.

We may share the personal information that we collect with government agencies or other regulatory bodies and law enforcement officials (for example, for tax reporting or for reporting suspicious transactions).
