Jackson Community Foundation is committed to honoring the privacy of all those we work with, including visitors to our website and subscribers to our electronic newsletters.


II. Personal Information

Your right to privacy is very important to us. We recognize that providing Jackson Community Foundation with your personal information is an act of trust.
