Privacy statement

At the OHSU Foundation, we advance OHSU’s mission by igniting the power of philanthropy. We rely on our philanthropic partners and advocates to fuel discovery, education, and excellent patient care as building blocks for a healthier world. When you share your personal details with us when making a donation, or supporting our mission in other ways, we want to be completely transparent as to how we use that information.

How we collect your information and how we may get in touch with you

When you give us your personal details by making a donation online or signing up for a newsletter, or if your contact information is shared with us by OHSU, it is kept safe and secure in our database using top-notch security standards. If you have given us consent, we may follow up with you regarding the area of interest you support at OHSU. Information we might share could include examples of the impact of your philanthropy on OHSU's mission, fundraising activities and events, and new opportunities for giving and engagement. We also love saying thank you.

It is our desire to communicate with you in thoughtful and meaningful ways, but if at any time you prefer not to receive communication from the OHSU Foundation, we provide easy ways to stop this communication by simply opting out of any or all communication at any time.

How to change how we communicate with you

We have taken care to ensure that contact and opt-out information is on all direct solicitation and patient fundraising materials. You can use this information to request no further communication from OHSU or the OHSU Foundation. You can also use the unsubscribe option on e-mails sent to you.

We don't like to share

We will never share your information with third parties for marketing purposes. We may share a deliberate and specific data set that includes some of your information with partners who help us with direct mailing preparation or data analysis, in order to better understand the needs of our donors and how best to contact them. However, our policy specifically disallows these partners from using this data for their own purposes or distributing this data to any third party. We ensure all of our partners maintain solid security practices and delete information when it's no longer needed. In order to ensure the data we have about you is correct, we occasionally may use information sources that are on the public internet and publicly available.
