Donor’s Bill of Rights

As of March 6, 2017, the Board of Directors adopted a Donor’s Bill of Rights. Donors have the right:

  1. To be informed of the organization’s mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.
  2. To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization’s governing board and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.
  3. To have access to the organization’s most recent financial statements.
  4. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.
  5. To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition.
  6. To be assured that information about their donation is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.
  7. To expect that all relationships with individuals representing JTEL will be professional in nature.
  8. To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors.
  9. To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share (we do not share our mailing lists with anyone).
  10. To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.

Unless your donation states otherwise, all donations will go towards general operating funds, to be used for the maintenance and operation of current JTEL buildings and properties. To see specific funds or ways to donate, please see Support JTEL.
