Why do I need a paid solicitor bond in Alaska?
Alaska requires paid solicitors for charitable organizations to post $10,000 surety bonds as part of the registration process with the Alaska Department of Law, Consumer Protection Unit, before conducting business in the state. You will need a paid solicitor bond if you are a paid solicitor or a professional fundraiser hired and compensated by a charitable organization to seek donations/fundraise on its behalf.
Alaska paid solicitor bonds ensure that principals (paid solicitors) perform all obligations and requirements imposed under AS 45.68 and 9 AAC 12, including paying all amounts due to the charitable organization for which it solicits funds. The bond protects state and charitable organizations from financial loss if the principal or its members, officers, employees, subsidiaries, and subcontractors conduct business unlawfully or unethically.
