Privacy Policy

Privacy and Security​

Since our founding in 1915, the California Community Foundation (CCF) has been committed to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and security of personal information entrusted to us by current donors, potential donors, the officers and staff of nonprofit agencies who approach us for funding and the people that they serve.

Like all organizations with a Web presence, CCF receives standard tracking data: information from your browser, including your IP address and the page you visited, is recorded in our website server logs. This data is analyzed internally to determine how to best provide information to visitors to our website. No personal information is collected during the tracking process.

Online giving transactions are processed on a secure server. We have put into effect appropriate procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Once you provide us with personal or professional information, that data remains confidential. We will not share any information you provide with any individual or organization. We do not knowingly collect or maintain information from those we know are younger than age 13, and no part of our website is designed to attract anyone under 13.

Links to Other Sites

As a community service, CCF provides links to websites for various nonprofits and nonprofit resources. Unless we expressly state otherwise, CCF makes no representations whatsoever concerning the content of those sites. A link to a website from CCF is not an endorsement, authorization, sponsorship or affiliation with respect to such site, its owners or providers. When leaving, we recommend you check the privacy policy of the site you are visiting before providing personal information.
