The following Privacy & Accessibility Statement governs all pages hosted at

We greatly appreciate the support of our donors and friends. It is of the utmost importance to Helen Keller International to protect the privacy rights of all visitors to our website and donors to our organization. Our policies regarding tracking, donation processing and use of data are provided below. If you have any other questions or concerns, please e-mail or call 1-877-KELLER4.

Our goal is to provide our website visitors with information about our organization in a straightforward manner. We do not use cookies to gather information about you. Visitors are not required to register to access our site; however, we do encourage donors to create an optional login and profile to make it easier for them to manage their contact information. A user who creates a profile is required to provide certain information, such as name, mailing address and email address, to facilitate the online donation and subsequent acknowledgement process.

We value your online donations and are committed to ensuring the safety and security of your transactions. HKI is in accordance with applicable laws and standard practices and uses industry standard protocols, which makes it extremely difficult for anyone to intercept your information. When making an online contribution we ask for your name, mailing address, e-mail and credit card information. All information is encrypted with SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption technology and transmitted to us in a secure way.

We ask for personally identifiable details only to process and acknowledge your gift and as a means of contacting you if there are any problems. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, processing the donation) are granted access to this information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment and are limited to use by the person performing those specific jobs.

Helen Keller International also uses the services of outside vendors who process credit card donations online. All of our vendors are obligated to adhere to our strict standards of privacy.

If you would prefer to donate to HKI by mail, please send your check to Helen Keller International, One Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, Floor 2, New York, NY 10017.  If you would like to make a credit card donation by phone, please contact us at 1-877-KELLER4.

HKI will send occasional updates and appeals to the e-mail address provided for donation processing. You may unsubscribe from receiving e-mails from HKI at any time. Unsubscribe information is also provided in each e-communication. If you create an online profile, you can manage your e-mail preferences directly by logging into the system and indicating that you do not wish to receive any future e-mail communications from Helen Keller International.

Occasionally, Helen Keller International will exchange names with similar non-profit organizations. All donors have the option to request that their names not be shared with third party organizations. In the case of memorial or in-honor contributions, we will send a letter to the designated recipient informing them of the gift.

Helen Keller International provides links to other organizations as an educational tool for those interested in blindness and health and nutrition issues. These websites are not under our control nor are we responsible for any content on these sites. The inclusion of a link does not indicate endorsement from Helen Keller International.

At any time, you can remove your name from our mailing list, limit the number of mailings you receive, or update your information. Please email, call 1-877-KELLER4, or write to One Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, Floor 2, New York, NY 10017.

Thank you for your interest in Helen Keller International and the sight- and life-saving work that we do.
