Fundraising Consultant and Solicitor State Registration Requirements


Some states require professional fundraisers and fundraising consultants register individually, separate from and in addition to a nonprofit’s own registration. While Affinity does not provide registration services for individual professional fundraisers, we do like to share what we can. Below are links to state requirements and/or registration forms for each type of professional provider that they regulate.

Be advised: definitions of Paid Solicitors, Commercial Fundraisers, Professional Fundraisers, Fund Raising Counsel, Professional Fund Raising Counsel, and Professional Fund Raising Consultants vary substantially from one state to the next.

If a state is not listed it may mean that there are no registration requirements for professionals, but not necessarily. It means only that we have been unable to provide links to online resources of those requirements.
