Is Your Fundraiser Registered?

Are the fundraisers and solicitors that do work for your nonprofit properly registered? Perhaps you think it does not affect your organization, but if a nonprofit has a contract with a fundraising counsel or solicitor that is not registered, then both the fundraiser and the nonprofit organization are not in compliance with the law and states often take action against both the nonprofit and the fundraiser if they notice that a nonprofit has a contract with a fundraiser that is not registered.

It is thus important to ensure that any fundraisers that your charity work with are registered or become registered quickly. A few states have an online databases of registered fundraisers that you can search to ensure that fundraisers and solicitors that you work with are in fact registered with the state. It is usually a good idea to check these to verify. Here are a few of the databases that you can check:
