Professional Fundraisers

The Charitable Trusts Unit registers and oversees the work of professional fundraisers operating in New Hampshire. Professional fundraisers can be broken down into three main categories: 1) Fund Raising Counsel, RSA 7:28-b; 2) Paid Solicitors, RSA 7:28-c; and 3) Commercial Co-Venturers, RSA 7:28-d.

  • Fund Raising Counsel are individuals or entities that are hired by a charitable organization to plan a fundraising campaign, but who do not solicit or collect funds for the charity. Fund Raising Counsel are required to register with the Charitable Trusts Unit annually, pay a filing fee, and submit copies of any contracts between the Fund Raising Counsel and the charitable organization.
  • Paid Solicitors are individuals or entities that are hired by a charitable organization to conduct a fundraising campaign on behalf of the charity. Paid Solicitors generally retain a percentage of the funds raised as payment for their services. Paid Solicitors are required to register with the Charitable Trusts Unit annually, post a $20,000 bond, and pay a filing fee. Paid Solicitors seeking to conduct a telemarketing or fundraising campaign on behalf of a charitable organization must first obtain a permit from the Charitable Trusts Unit. The Paid Solicitor must file an application and pay a filing fee for each campaign.
  • Commercial Co-Ventures are relationships between a for-profit entity and a charitable organization where the for-profit entity collects a donation to the charity along with sale of its goods or services. A charitable organization engaging in such a relationship with a for-profit entity must maintain a copy of the contract and make it available to the Charitable Trusts Unit upon request.
