They have little respect for donor privacy. I rarely make any type of donation that is not anonymous. After I moved to Georgia, I find myself using parts of the A.T. for day hikes and some weekend backpacking. I figured I'd donate to the conservancy as a way to give back. For some reason, I didn't feel the need to donate anonymously with the ATC when making my first. Within a month my mailbox was full of solicitation from seemingly every nature type charity that exists. That really turned my stomach; how these folks at the ATC sold me out. It also brought a swift end to any thoughts of donating to the ATC again.
