We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), the information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only Cultivate board members, employees, or contractors who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment

Non-Discrimination Policy

Cultivate does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status in any of its activities or operations. These activities include, but are not limited to, hiring and firing of staff, selection of volunteers and vendors, and provision of services. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, clients, volunteers, subcontractors, vendors, and clients.

Cultivate is an equal opportunity employer. We will not discriminate and will take affirmative action measures to ensure against discrimination in employment, recruitment, advertisements for employment, compensation, termination, upgrading, promotions, and other conditions of employment against any employee or job applicant on the bases of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, veteran's status, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

Procedure for complaints: if at any time an employee, volunteer, trainee or supporter of Cultivate experiences or observes discrimination taking place, they can submit a formal complaint in writing to the Board President at board@cultivatetraining.org. Contact information for Cultivate's Board of Directors is listed here. If Cultivate does not acknowledge receipt of the complaint within 30 days and begin addressing the stated discrimination, complaints should also be submitted to the Minnesota Attorney General here.

Conflict of Interest

Cultivate's Board of Directors abide by a conflict-of-interest policy that mandates that all potential conflicts are disclosed and accounted for. This includes conflicts which may compete for the person's responsibility to govern Cultivate well, and their personal or professional responsibilities or goals. This policy mandates that board members disclose on an annual basis any relationships, financial interests, partnerships, or other commitments which may be incompatible with Cultivate's mission, policies, bylaws or best interest. When a conflict exists, other board members are notified and take the conflict into consideration when making governance decisions for the organization.


Our policies and terms may change from time to time and all updates will be posted on this page.

If you feel we are not abiding by these policies, you should contact us immediately via email at hello@cultivatetraining.org or contact our Board of Directors at board@cultivatetraining.org.
