The DRMM Commitment to Donor Privacy
Last updated 05/10/2017

Affirmations to Our Donors

In exercising the right to privacy of our donor’s confidential information, it is the policy and practice of Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries to assure that:

  • We at DRMM will never trade, share, or sell, rent its donor list or any donor’s personal information with other organizations, foundations, or government-related agencies. The only time when we will share or sell personal information is once the donor gives us specific permission to do so.
  • All donor transactions are collected through a computerized system that maintains a high level of secured technology that protects sensitive donor information for authorized internal and external usage strictly monitored by DRMM donor processing professionals.
  • This policy is comprehensive and applies to donor information collected both online and offline.

Purpose of Our Donor Privacy Policy

The Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries would like to thank the thousands of individuals and organizations for their donations, prayers, and volunteer efforts to help us transform lives of people who are in need of our services.
