The Wilson College Office of Institutional Advancement Privacy Statement
This statement explains how the Wilson College Office of Institutional Advancement stores and manages your data. Our goal is to be transparent, clear and specific for constituents who reside in European Union countries and the United Kingdom, and who are protected by the 2016 ruling establishing the General Data Protection Regulation.
Wilson College’s Office of Institutional Advancement maintains a database containing personal information of our Wilson community members, both past and current. We endeavor to keep this contact information up to date for the legitimate interest of keeping the College community abreast of College events and news. Your contact information is held in a database, which is hosted on a secure server, and is protected by multi-level authentication. Access is restricted to staff who need to see the data to carry out their duties at Wilson College.
You are the main source of our data as you update us about address changes, family changes or educational/career accomplishments. You may use the online profile update form on the Wilson website to update your information electronically. This form can be found by going to the Wilson homepage, clicking on “Alumnae/i” and selecting the “Profile Update” link. We may find more information from publicly available sources to assess your capacity and inclination to support Wilson College. However, we do not perform wealth screenings and/or address & telephone appends for constituents in either the UK or EU. We will not make your personally identifiable information available to any entity or individual outside of the Office of Institutional Advancement without your consent, except for the distribution of College publications, the Wilson Magazine, the annual donor report or for class directories, which require class volunteers to sign a confidentiality agreement for receipt. To access the confidentiality agreement, click here. A Wilson constituent has the right to request that her/his directory or proprietary information not be shared, or to request no contact, and her /his record shall be coded as such. The Wilson College Office of Institutional Advancement is dedicated to holding your data securely and treating it with sensitivity.

Planned gifts in the form of a bequest, gift annuity or trust allow you to make both extraordinary contributions to Wilson College and to provide for your own financial future. Planned gifts can be very simple to implement and can serve an important role in your estate plans. Many planned gifts have sizable tax benefits and can provide you income and security during your life.
To discuss making a planned gift contact the Vice President for Institutional Advancement, Camilla Rawleigh, at 717-262-2010 ext. 3404 or by email at Camilla.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every day members of the Wilson family make decisions to make our campus a better community…a better place through our teaching, learning, and caring.
We understand that giving is a personal decision and our individual reasons for contributing are many; however, we have at least one common purpose – to support the reason we are all here – our future – the students. Because we work and learn here and we are invested in the success of the College, we know first-hand how our gifts can make a difference in the lives of those we touch.
Strong giving by our faculty and staff demonstrates to external donors that those who work closely with our students model the giving behavior we would like our alumnae/i and friends to emulate.
I ask you to consider making a gift in any amount to Wilson College, and if you are able, to join us as members of the Pines and Maples Society (giving at $1,000 and higher from July 1 – June 30.) You can make a larger gift over time by utilizing payroll deduction. Please click the Faculty and Staff Giving Form to make your contribution.
Feel free to contact us with any questions.
