Fundraising and Donations Policies

The Raleigh Public Record is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Donations to the Record are tax deductible. All donations solicited on behalf of the organization shall be used to further the Record’s mission.

Fundraising and Donations Policy
Funds shall be solicited in a respectful manner and without pressure. All third parties not directly affiliated with the Record who wish to solicit funds on behalf of the organization must acquire written permission from the Record executive staff prior to beginning any fundraising activities. Gifts to the Record may not be directly or indirectly subjected by a donor to any material restriction or condition that would prevent the organization from freely and effectively employing the transferred assets, or the income derived there from, in furtherance of its exempt purposes. All donor designated restrictions that have been expressly accepted by the Record executive staff shall be honored.

Donations to the Record may be given online, sent via snail mail to our address or given during a fundraising event. The Record is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization and contributions made to the organization are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. In the case of monetary donations of $50 or more, donors who included their contact information shall receive a formal acknowledgement and/or donation receipt within 30 days of the Record’s receipt of the donation.

Donor Privacy Policy
The Record does not sell or share donor lists. Contact information supplied to the Record by donors will be used solely to fulfill their donation and shall not be shared for any reason unless permission is granted by the donor to share such information.

Donors who supply the Record with their postal address or email address may be contacted periodically for solicitation purposes and/or with information regarding upcoming events.  Every new donor who offers contact information will receive invitations to special events. All donors have the option of being placed on a “once-a-year” mailing list which grants the Record permission to contact them only once per year. Donors may request to be permanently removed from the mailing list by unsubscribing through our website. Donors who supply the Record with their telephone number may request that they not be contacted for telephone fundraising purposes.

The Record will publish the names of donors who contribute more than $1,000 in accordance with transparency policies outlined by the Investigative News Network.
