Who Needs to Register (and post the bond)?

In Colorado, a paid solicitor who needs to register with the Secretary of State is someone who receives compensation for soliciting charitable contributions. This compensation can come in various forms, not just a direct salary.

Here’s a breakdown of what qualifies as a paid solicitor:

  • Receives compensation: This could be a commission, salary, hourly wage, or any other form of payment for their solicitation activities.
  • Solicits contributions: Their primary function is to ask for donations on behalf of a charitable organization.
  • On behalf of a charity: They are working for a registered charitable organization in Colorado.

Examples of paid solicitors:

  • Fundraising consultants hired by a charity
  • Telemarketing companies paid to solicit donations
  • Individuals who get a commission for donations they raise

Keep in mind:

  • The charity itself doesn’t need to register as a paid solicitor, only those who are getting directly compensated for soliciting donations.
  • There are exemptions for certain types of solicitations, so it’s always best to check with the Colorado Secretary of State’s office for clarification if you’re unsure about your specific situation.
