Discussion of Donor Data Retention
JANUARY 15, 2015
A few months ago I wrote a post on the topic of whether nonprofits should delete old donor records. The original question: My organization is working on a data retention policy and wondering if others have insights to share. The only potential issue here is then you need to consider an additional record as part of the retention schedule, though if this were also 7 years, you would conceivably be able to access records of people who had been inactive for up to 14 years.
