  • How We Use Collected Information:
    • We may also use your information in other ways, such as to contact you about upcoming activities and/or fundraising campaigns or as otherwise disclosed to you at the point of collection. For example, if you join our main email list, we will have a record of your email address and all other information you choose to provide. We will send you an eNews and also may contact you with action alerts, fundraising campaigns and other activities. If you make a donation to the LAFC Foundation, your information will be added to our donor list and database, and you may be contacted about other activities, news, action alerts, fundraising campaigns or sweepstakes. Personal information will be shared internally at the LAFC Foundation to complete your donations or purchasing transactions. The data collected may be shared with third parties on an aggregated basis. Except in the limited circumstances outlined below, we will never intentionally share your email addresses, phone numbers or financial information.

If you choose to make a donation online, by phone (landline or mobile), through the mail or by other means, we will share your personal information with our processing service providers. We make an effort to require all third party service-providers to hold personal information in strict confidence. While we believe these other companies are upstanding and will treat your personal information responsibly, we do not own or control them and cannot guarantee your privacy.
