Arkansas Fundraising Consultant and Solicitor State Registration Definitions
Every State Names and Defines Fundraising Professionals Differently
Fundraising Consultant is similar to Fundraising Counsel, but there may be different definitions from one state to the next. A Fundraiser is often the same as a Professional Solicitor, but not always.
Fund-raising counsel is a person or entity, who for a flat fixed fee or fixed hourly rate, under a written agreement, plans, conducts, manages, carries on, advises, or acts as a consultant, whether directly or indirectly, in connection with soliciting contributions for, or on behalf of, any charitable organization, whether directly or indirectly, in connection with soliciting contributions for, or on behalf of, any charitable organization, but who actually solicits no contributions as a part of the service. Fund-raising counsel does not receive or control funds or assets solicited for charitable purposes nor does counsel procure or employ any compensated person to do so. No lawyer, investment counselor, or banker who advises a person to make a contribution shall be deemed, as a result of that advice, to be a fund-raising counsel. A bona fide salaried officer or employee of a registered or exempt charitable organization shall not be deemed to be a fundraising counsel.
