Professional Fund Raiser Search
Under the Minnesota Social and Charitable Organization Act, professional fund-raisers that solicit funds from the public on behalf of charitable organizations are required to register with the Attorney General’s Office. A professional fund-raiser includes a person or company that for compensation performs solicitations or plans, manages, advises, consults, or prepares materials for an organization that solicits contributions. As part of its registration, a professional fund-raiser, is required to provide copies of contracts with all organizations that the professional fund-raiser represents.
