Donor Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us.

Use of Donor Information: Donor information is used to complete the transaction, record the donation, generate the appropriate tax receipt, and appropriately acknowledge each gift donation. Donor records are also used for general record keeping and internal analysis. Credit card information is used to process the gift, but is not retained. Texas Christian University does not rent, market or otherwise disclose donor information to any outside party or vendor for non-University purposes, unless required under law. Within the University, access to donor information is limited to University staff members with a need to know. Staff members are bound by a professional code of ethics and the "Donor Bill of Rights."

Donor Recognition: TCU enjoys providing donors with recognition for their gifts through print, spoken, and/or web-based media. However, you may choose to waive this recognition and make a gift anonymously. Please contact the Donor Relations Office if you would like your gift to be anonymous. We will always respect your decision to keep a gift confidential.

Email Opt-Out: TCU communicates with donors on a regular basis via email through our alumni community, We separate email into categories such as "Athletics - Football" or "Neeley School of Business." We provide a method to opt-out of receiving a particular category of email, or all TCU emails, at the bottom of every email sent via our alumni email system, without requiring a log-in.

Email Opt-In/Choice: By default, you are opted in to TCU emails. If you have opted out of TCU emails and wish to opt in again, you may do so by updating your profile on our alumni system at If you are not a TCU alumnus/a, you may indicate your email preferences by completing this online form.
