VisionSpring Donor Privacy Policy

VisionSpring is a constantly growing and changing organization. Because of this, we try to keep up-to-date records on our donors so we can keep you informed and involved in what we are doing. VisionSpring understands the importance of respecting our donors’ privacy. Let’s take a look at how VisionSpring uses your donor information while keeping it safe!

We may use donor comments for promotional purposes only with the donor’s informed consent.
