New Jersey Fundraising Consultant and Solicitor State Registration Definitions

Every state names and defines fund raising professionals differently. For instance, Fundraising Consultant is similar to Fund-raising counsel but there may be different definitions. A Fundraiser is often the same as a Professional Solicitor, but not always.

New Jersey
Fundraising counsel means any person, including, but not limited to, any assignee, subcontractor, independent contractor or successor in interest, who is retained by a charitable organization for a fixed fee or rate to plan, manage, advise, consult or prepare material for or with respect to the solicitation in this State of contributions for a charitable organization, but who does not solicit contributions or employ, procure or engage any compensated person to solicit contributions. A bona fide salaried officer, employee, or volunteer of a charitable organization shall not be deemed to be a fundraising counsel. No attorney, accountant or banker who renders professional services to a charitable organization or advises a person to make a charitable contribution during the course of rendering professional services to that person shall be deemed, as a result of the professional service or advice rendered, to be a fundraising counsel.
