Donor Privacy Policy

The Vero Beach Museum of Art (VBMA) is committed to protecting the privacy of our donors. The VBMA does not sell, trade, or rent personal information about our donors with third-party organizations.

Data Collection

The Museum may collect personal data about donors for a number of reasons:

  • to administer and maintain accounts relating to donations;
  • to facilitate fundraising;
  • to communicate with donors and potential donors regarding the Museum and its programs; and
  • to comply with legal and regulatory requirements.

Such personal information may include name, address, phone number, e-mail address, and credit card number when a donor voluntarily provides it to us. However, all credit card information is deleted/destroyed immediately following the completion of a transaction. In addition, the VBMA keeps a record of each donor’s giving history. This information is kept on file for auditing purposes and is also used by the Development Department to analyze giving patterns and to provide donor and customer service of the highest quality.


Office policies are in place to safeguard donor information, including:

  • physical measures, including restricted access to offices
  • technological measures, such as the use of passwords and encryption

Individual records are kept only as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose for which they were collected and to comply with applicable laws.

Opt-Out Policy

An individual may withdraw his or her consent to the collection, use, or disclosure at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions, and reasonable notice. The Museum makes reasonable efforts to keep donor files complete, up-to-date, and accurate.  Donors who wish to access, update or correct personal contact information, remove themselves from our mailing list or discuss a privacy concern with the Museum can contact the Development Department by phone at (772) 231-0707 or via e-mail at
