March Webinar Sale - 50% Off

special_offer_tag.jpgState Charitable Solicitation Statutes:
Everything You Wanted to Know But Were Afraid to Ask

Are Charities that seek contributions nationally required to register in 39 states and the District of Columbia that require registration before starting to solicit? What about for-profit fundraisers? Are they required to register and file their contracts and other documentation in some states? Since many states are increasing their enforcement efforts to ensure that charities and fundraisers are complying with initial and annual registration requirements, it's important that charities and fundraisers abide by these statutes-especially since noncompliance can result in the imposition of significant fines and penalties.

Price: $44.50
That's 50% off its regular price of $89.
