- To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.
- To receive appropriate acknowledgment and recognition.
- To be assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.
- To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.
- To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors.
- To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share.

In the case that a donor decides to cancel any donation commitment and/or pledge after authorizing us to charge donations, the donor is obliged to contact Pure Hands directly to notify it to immediately cancel the donations. After a charge is made, it may be refunded and the commitment canceled on the condition that the charge is not disputed with any other financial institution. Pure Hands is not liable to refund any charge if it is not notified of the cancellation request first.
