Donor Privacy

The Berkeley Public Library Foundation (BPLF) is committed to long-term relationships with our donors and handles donor information with care and confidentiality. We are dedicated to respecting the privacy rights of our donors.

Personal Information

The BPLF collects email addresses when you subscribe to the library’s e-newsletter All Things Library. The BPLF does not sell or rent this information with third parties. In order to increase support for the library and keep costs low, we may on rare occasion exchange email addresses with other carefully selected non-profits. Subscribers are given the opportunity to remove your name from our email list at the bottom of each e-newsletter.

BPLF collects donor name and address information in connection with contributions. We do not rent or sell donor information to third parties.

Donors who wish to have their name removed from the exchange list can call (510) 981-6115 or email [email protected].
