Personal Information

Your right to privacy is very important to us. We recognize that providing The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven with your personal information is an act of trust. When you visit The Community Foundation online, you remain anonymous, as we do not require registration to view our website or access information.

We may occasionally ask for your feedback via surveys or other communications to better understand your interests and needs. We will also request information through online forms used to register for a foundation event or request use of our conference facilities. The Foundation does not share, rent, sell or make public any personal information gathered through our website to non-affiliated organizations.

That information is only used on this site and is not distributed or sold to any other party or site.
