Donor Acceptance and Disclosure Policy
The CYIS accepts funds from a broad range of sources provided they are for purposes that are in keeping with its mission. These contributions may be payable on an annual basis or over a period of time, or be given as in-kind goods or services. The CYIS is grateful for the contributions it receives, which provides critical support that makes the Centre's work possible. The CYIS respects donor intent.
Acceptance of any contribution is at the discretion of the CYIS. Accordingly, each is subject to a condition, which is reflected in a written acceptance letter for any contribution of €250 and above that stipulates that the CYIS is accepting such contribution on the condition that the CYIS retains intellectual independence and control over any content funded in whole or in part by the contribution, consistent with the Centre's Intellectual Independence Policy.
As a general policy, the CYIS does not accept anonymous contributions. In appropriate occasions the CYIS will make exceptions to this policy for individual donors. For example, some individuals have a policy of not disclosing their charitable giving.
The CYIS publicly acknowledges all its donors who give €250 or more in an annual Honor Roll of Contributors or similar listing on its website or in a print or electronic annual report, and may do so in other contexts as well.
The CYIS does not sell, trade, or rent its donor lists, and does not share donor information with third parties. The CYIS takes all reasonable and appropriate measures to prevent unauthorized use of its donor lists.
