The New Jersey Professional Fund Raiser’s Bond is required by the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs in the amount of $20,000 for fundraising counsels or independent paid fundraisers.
According to the Charitable Registration and Investigation Section Law, a fundraising counsel is any person who is retained by a charitable organization for a fixed fee or rate to plan, manage, advise, consult or prepare material for or with respect to the solicitation in this State of contributions for a charitable organization. An independent fundraiser, meanwhile, is any person, who for compensation performs for or on behalf of a charitable organization any service in connection with which contributions are or will be solicited in this State by that compensated person or by any compensated person he employs, procures, or engages, directly or indirectly to solicit contributions.
The bond states that the bondholder shall faithfully and honestly act as such independent paid fund raiser or fund raising counsel in accordance with the law, and fully comply with the provisions of the Charitable Registration and Investigation Act of 1994.
