Privacy & Information Management

South Muskoka Hospital Foundation recognizes your right to confidentiality and pledges to protect it. We adhere to all applicable privacy legislation in Canada, the privacy guidelines of the Canadian Centre for Philanthropy; and abide by the Donor Bill of Rights and the Code of Ethical Principles and Standards of Professional Practice developed by the Association of Fundraising Professionals.

Collection and Use of Personal Information
South Muskoka Hospital Foundation collects a limited amount of personal information about its donors, volunteers and potential supporters, including name, title, address, telephone numbers, email address, past donations and other relevant contact information. This information is collected in order to comply with Canada Customs and Revenue Agency requirements, to provide donors and potential supporters with information about the Hospital’s and Foundation’s activities, to provide donors with stewardship information and to promote opportunities where donors and potential supporters may support the Foundation.

When donors make contributions, we also collect:

  1. Method of payment and amount of the contribution.
  2. We process standard credit card information (card number, card type, and expiration date).
  3. In the case of memorial and in-honour contributions, a personalized gift card is sent to a designated recipient. Therefore, we will request the name, address, city, province, postal code and telephone number of your designating gift card recipient. Foundation staff may contact you with further communications.

Safe Keeping of Information
We maintain records of all contributions made to the Foundation and interest and affiliation information of donors, volunteers and potential supporters. The Foundation does not sell, trade or otherwise share our contact lists.

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we strive to maintain physical, electronic and administrative safeguards to secure the information we collect. All information is accessible only by authorized staff.

If you wish to restrict the use of your contact information, please let us know by one of the following methods:
