We will use information provided to us by donors and prospective donors for these purposes only:
• To distribute receipts for donations;
• To thank donors for their donations;
• To include the names of our donors in publications (such as an annual report), when applicable, which may be available in print and on our website; provided, that the names of donors who request that their gift be received anonymously will not be published in such publications;
• To inform donors and prospective donors about program updates and outcomes, news, special events, funding requests, and upcoming activities for Nexus Foundation for Family Healing, Nexus Family Healing, and its affiliates;
• For internal analysis and recordkeeping; and

Nexus Foundation for Family Healing works closely with Nexus Family Healing and its affiliates, and information about donors and prospective donors may be shared among our network of programs and organizations to facilitate effective and efficient communications. For example, we may use this information to make more accurate budget projections, to understand donors’ interests in our mission, and to plan future events and activities.
