Donor Privacy Policy


Worldwatch is grateful for the support of its donors and respects their right to privacy.

All requests to remain anonymous shall be honored.

Any information supplied to Worldwatch Institute by donors will be used solely to fulfill their donation and shall not be shared outside the organization for any reason unless permission is granted by the donor to share such information. Worldwatch Institute does not sell or share donor lists. Worldwatch Institute will not use your personal information to send mailings on behalf of other organizations.

Donors who supply Worldwatch Institute with their postal address or email address may be contacted periodically for solicitation purposes and/or with information regarding upcoming events.  

All donors have the option of being placed on a "once-a-year" mailing list that  grants Worldwatch Institute permission to contact them only once per year.  Donors may request to be permanently removed from Worldwatch Institute’s mailing list by contacting us via email, phone, or postal mail. Donors may request also to be removed from our e-mail list by clicking the "unsubscribe" link or by contacting us via email, phone, or postal mail. All requests to be removed from Worldwatch Institute’s mailing and e-mailing lists shall be honored. 

If you have comments or questions about our donor privacy policy, please send us an email at or call us at +1 (202) 745-8092.
