Refund and Privacy Policies

Gift Policy Standards

All donations to the Mill Neck Family of Organizations support our mission to enhance the quality of life for people who are Deaf, or who have other special communication needs, through excellence in individually designed educational, vocational or spiritual programs and services.

The Mill Neck Family of Organizations manages a number of fundraising efforts (mailings, events, etc.) throughout the year to provide outstanding programs and services for the children and adults that we serve. The funds used each and every day come from individuals, foundations and corporations who believe in our mission. We will carefully consider the needs of the organizations and will use your gift where we determine it is most needed, unless you select a specific program, so that all donations may support our services. When processing your gift, we will follow the Mill Neck Family of Organizations' business rules and best practice procedures.

As a "family" of not-for-profit organizations, we rely on donor financial support. Private donations form an integral part of our support structure, especially when state funding is reduced each year, while the need for our services continues to increase.

The Mill Neck Family of Organizations may refuse any gift that does not sufficiently benefit the organization, is in conflict with the Mill Neck Family of Organizations' mission, puts the reputation of the Mill Neck Family of Organizations at risk or is prohibited by law. We do not accept political donations.

Thank you for your support of the Mill Neck Family of Organizations!
