Breakthrough Urban Ministries is committed to respecting the privacy of our donors. We have developed this privacy policy to ensure our donors that donor information will not be shared with any third party.

Awareness:  Breakthrough Urban Ministries provides this Donor Privacy Policy to inform donors of the way their information is used. We also provide donors with the opportunity to remove their name from our mailing list, if so desired.

  • Contact information: name, organization/church, complete address, phone number, email address

How Information is Used: Breakthrough uses donor information to understand donor needs and provide better service. Specifically, we use donor information to help complete a transaction, communicate back to the donor, and update the donor on ministry happenings at Breakthrough. Credit card numbers are used only for donations and are not retained for other purposes. We take seriously each recommendation as to how we might improve communication.
