Louisiana 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.
(6) "Professional solicitor" means any person who, for financial consideration, solicits contributions for or on behalf of a charitable organization, whether such solicitation is performed personally or through his agents, servants, or employees or through agents engaged in the solicitation of contributions under the direction of such person. A salaried officer or salaried employee of a charitable organization maintaining a permanent establishment within the state shall not be deemed to be a professional solicitor. However, any salaried officer or salaried employee of a charitable organization who engages in the solicitation of contributions in any manner for more than one charitable organization, if a fee is charged for services to the organization other than the one that he is employed by, shall be deemed a professional solicitor. This definition shall not apply to a person who solicits contributions on behalf of a charitable organization on a voluntary basis. Persons making interstate solicitations from Louisiana or making interstate solicitations into Louisiana for charitable organizations are deemed to be professional solicitors.
