Donor Privacy Policy

Samaritan Inns is committed to respecting the privacy of our donors. We have developed this privacy policy to assure our donors that donor information will not be shared with any third party.

Information Collected. Here are the types of donor information that we collect and maintain:

  • Name (including name of spouse or partner, if applicable)
  • Organization/company
  • Complete address
  • Phone number
  • Email address
  • Historical record of donations/interactions (phone calls, volunteer activities, etc.)

How Information is Used. Samaritan Inns uses your information to send and/or email news about Samaritan Inns, and/or the issues of homelessness and substance abuse in the Washington, DC metro area. Because online donations are conducted via a third party processor, we do not retain any information with regard to your credit card or other financial processors (e.g., PayPal) that you use to make an online donation.

No Sharing of Personal Information. Samaritan Inns will not sell, rent, or lease your personal information to other organizations. We assure you that the identity of all our donors will be kept confidential, with the exception of donor lists that may appear on our web site, at a special event, or in an Annual Report.

Removing Your Name From Our Mailing List. It is our desire to not send unwanted mail to our donors. Please contact us if you wish to be removed from our mailing list.

Contacting Us. If you have comments or questions about our donor privacy policy, please email us at, or call us at (202) 667-8831.
