The website is owned and operated by York County Community Foundation. Our intention is to inform and educate visitors about our work as a grantmaker, community resource and philanthropic partner to local individuals, families and corporations.
Your right to privacy is very important to us. We recognize that providing York County Community Foundation with your personal information is an act of trust. When you visit York County Community Foundation online, you remain anonymous, as we do not require registration to view our website or access most information.

We may occasionally ask for your feedback via surveys or other communications to better understand your interests and needs. We may also request information through online forms used to register for a foundation event or request use of our conference facilities. The foundation does not share or make public any personal information gathered through our website.

Any limited access portions of our website may require you to provide personal information to authenticate your identity. That information is only used on this site and is not distributed or sold to any other party or site. Limited access sections are encrypted to provide security and privacy when you access information, initiate transactions or send secure messages.
Under IRS Code, the following foundation documents are public information:

IRS Forms 990 and affiliated schedules for the past three years.
Exemption letter from the IRS.
Approved application for exemption with supporting documentation.
Lists of our donors, other than those presented in our publications, are not available to the public. We do not reveal the name of anonymous donors.

Throughout our website(s), we offer links to third party sites. Since we do not control those websites, we encourage you to review their privacy policies as well.

If at any time you wish to stop receiving York County Community Foundation’s electronic newsletters or other communications, or to be removed from our email list, you may unsubscribe from that list as explained in each message. York County Community Foundation will not give your email addresses to other organizations; however, we may occasionally send you mailings regarding events, products or services by reputable third parties if we think they may be of interest to you. In such circumstances, we do not provide the organization with your information, but send the mailing ourselves.
