St Martin-in-the-Fields Trust exists solely to secure the long term future of St Martin’s buildings, programmes and mission. To achieve our ambitions we seek and welcome charitable donations from individuals, trusts and foundations and organisations.
Our fundraising is legal, open, honest and respectful. We adhere to the Code of Fundraising Practice and are registered with the Fundraising Regulator, which sets and maintains the standards for charitable fundraising in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
In accordance with the Data Protection Act, and from May 2018 General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), we have reviewed our lawful basis for processing data. St Martin-in-the-Fields Trust processes data on the principles of Legitimate Interest and Consent for specific aspects of our fundraising activities. This means that the Trust is responsible for considering and protecting the rights and interests of those whose data we hold.
To ensure that our fundraising work is done effectively, we collect, store and analyse data for as long as is necessary to develop and enhance our relationship with supporters.
We will never sell an individual’s data. From time to time we do work with a trusted third party to help us gain a better understanding of our supporters and potential new supporters.
We keep our newsletters and fundraising appeals to a minimum and only contact those who want or would expect to hear from us, via their preferred channel of communication (by post or email).
You can opt out of some – or all – communications at any time by contacting the Trust Office or by using the Fundraising Preference Service.
You are always welcome to contact us to discuss any matters concerning the Trust’s fundraising activity and your data. To do so, please contact Katy Shaw, Trust Director
