The Hatch Community Youth Fund, Inc. does not collect online or off-line contact information from a minor (under the age of 18) without prior parental consent or notification, which includes an opportunity for the parent to prevent use of the information and participation in the activity. Should any parent choose to remove the use of their child’s information they can contact The Hatch Community Youth Fund, Inc., PO Box 195, Castine, Maine 04421:

  1. Via email info@thehatchfund.org
  2. Via postal mail to the following address:
