Founders Giving Circle

The Founders Giving Circle, established by Ike & Cathy Vanden Eykel and Dodee & Billy Crockett, upholds Family Compass’ vision for a sustainable, strong financial future. With the goal to honor those founders who have steadfastly supported the mission of the agency since inception in 1992, this giving circle will leverage major donor dollars to grow our mission to prevent child abuse and neglect. It creates a specific space for large gifts and even corporate level giving which will establish a solid foundation for the agency to grow from. This type of support also increases funding diversity which leads to overall future stability for the agency. On behalf of the parents and children we serve, we sincerely thank Ike & Cathy Vanden Eykel and Dodee & Billy Crockett for the creation of this vital sustainability instrument for Family Compass.

Please join with our founders to break the cycle of child abuse and neglect in North Texas.

Donor Information Collection and Use

Protecting the confidentiality of personally identifiable information of our donors collected through our website or other methods is a top priority of Family Compass. Family Compass only gathers personally identifiable data (examples: addresses, zip codes, email addresses) when voluntarily submitted by you or your company. Except as stated herein, Family Compass will not disclose, sell, share, trade, or rent any personally identifiable data collected on this site. This information is used by your company’s payroll administrator (for payroll deductions), United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, or a secure online merchant bank (for credit cards & e-checks) for the purpose of executing the transaction. Family Compass may use your information for other internal purposes, including communications to make you aware of how your donations are being spent, events, newsletters, and other general information relating to Family Compass.

Family Compass would release personally identifiable data about you, if necessary, in order to comply with valid legal processes such as a search warrant, subpoena, or court order. Family Compass also reserves the right to use all information, including personally identifiable data, at its disposal and to share this information with internet service providers and other third parties only as necessary to investigate any incident of misuse or abuse of its site, server, or information systems.

Other Web sites that you may link to from our site, including our partners’ Web sites, maintain their own privacy policies. Family Compass is not responsible for the privacy practices of other Web sites or affiliate agencies. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of Web sites or affiliate agencies before providing them with any of your personally identifiable information.


You are given the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of having your personally identifiable data used for communication purposes. You can select “anonymous”, “keep confidential” or opt-out on any of our email, registration, or donation forms. You may also email us at

Credit Card and Bank Account Information

Family Compass appreciates the trust you place in us when you share with us your credit card or bank account information. Protecting this information is a responsibility we take seriously, and we act in compliance with federal regulations and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).

Your Security

We take every precaution to protect the safety and security of your transaction both online and off-line. We use a high-grade encryption and the https security protocol, SSL, to communicate with your browser software. This method is the industry standard in security protocol, helping to keep your personally identifiable data as secure as possible.

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect user-information off-line. Only Family Compass authorized employees are granted access to personally identifiable data. All servers on which personally identifiable data is stored are kept in a secure environment.

Changes to Privacy Policy

If we change our privacy statement, we will post those changes prominently so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose it to anyone.
