Personal contact information we collect and what we do with it
If you make a donation, we may contact you from time to time (in writing only, never by telephone) to offer you an opportunity to make another gift, or to offer services from third parties that will directly benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation (e.g., a Make-A-Wish® affinity credit card).
From time to time, the Make-A-Wish Foundation rents or exchanges its list of supporters with other trusted organizations to benefit the Foundation’s programs and activities. Prior to doing so, we will notify you and give you the option to opt-out. We have found this to be the most cost-effective method of reaching additional potential constituents and hope you value the information they send you. Your name is only made available to these carefully screened organizations through third-party mailing agents for a limited use. Such organizations will not have continued access to your name and address unless you choose to respond to their initial mailing.
Personal contact information may also be shared with our agents, i.e., reputable companies we use for services such as shipping Make-A-Wish products or sending Make-A-Wish mail. We have confidentiality agreements in place with all such agents to protect your privacy. Finally, in some cases when you wish to refer a child, make a donation to your local chapter, or ask for local chapter information, your contact information may be passed on to your local chapter.

We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. Your IP address may also be used to gather broad demographic information. Occasionally, we may use session cookies to improve content, provide easier access and understand how visitors use our website. Session cookies are also used to support our e-commerce pages.

Children With respect to children, the Make-A-Wish Foundation only collects personally identifiable contact information from children who are referring themselves as potential wish children. We pass that information on to the child's local Make-A-Wish chapter so the chapter can contact the child's family to make an assessment of wish eligibility; however, we do not share it in any other way or with any other parties. We do not give the ability to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable contact information in any way.
