Colorado 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.
Professional fundraising consultant means any person, other than a bona fide officer or regular employee of a charitable organization, who is retained by a charitable organization for a fixed fee or rate under a written agreement 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. No lawyer, investment counselor, 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 the person shall be deemed, as a result of such professional services or advice, to be a "professional fundraising consultant".
