We Take Your Privacy Seriously

The Library Foundation of Los Angeles is committed to keeping your information safe and secure. We do not collect any personally identifying information unless you voluntarily provide it to us. This information is used only by the Library Foundation for the following:

  • maintaining records of donations
  • to send acknowledgements
  • mail year-end tax statements to you
  • Send newsletters, notices, and direct mail pieces for internal marketing purposes. Our third-party mailing service is contractually obligated to treat the lists with confidentiality and is prohibited from transferring them elsewhere.

We do not rent, sell, or trade your personal information to any outside company or organization.

Enrolling in email updates

If you give us permission to contact you by email, your name and contact information will be used for the sole purpose of sending you information about our organization, including news, events, and giving opportunities. You may choose to unsubscribe at any time by sending an email to [email protected].

Occasionally the Library Foundation partners with peer organizations to host public events. We use an “opt-in” policy for registering for these events. There will always be accompanying language that discloses your email address may be shared with that partner organization unless you opt out. Additionally, participation in those events may require registering your email address with an outside organization; as such your information will be subject to that organization’s privacy policy.

Donating Online

Online donations to the Library Foundation are processed by Mobile Cause, a PCI Level 1 Certified fundraising platform that uses industry-standard security protocols to protect your personal and financial information. If you make an online donation, your name, mailing address, telephone number, email address, and credit card information will be used only to process your transactions.

If you prefer, you may donate by sending a check to:

The Library Foundation of Los Angeles
630 W Fifth St
Los Angeles, CA 90071
