Whether it’s the holidays or an unexpected disaster, Americans are always willing to donate to those less fortunate, yet many charities rent or trade their donor lists to other organizations to raise much-needed funds. As a result, you might get more requests in the mail the more you donate.
There is a solution to this problem.
You can send a letter, along with your donations, asking the recipient not rent, sell, or trade your personal information, name, or donation history to anyone. Or ask the recipient to limit its solicitations to only a few times a year. Explain that your future support is contingent on its cooperation.
When your charity complies with your request, consider increasing your donations to reward it and to offset any lost revenue from renting your name.
