Why do I need this bond?
This bond ensures that paid solicitors for charity adhere to the provisions of Colorado Revised Statutes Title 6, Article 16, called the Colorado Charitable Solicitations Act. Solicitors cannot misrepresent charities or imply that donating to the charity will earn the donor favorable treatment from law enforcement or government agencies. Violations of the Act are considered charitable fraud and can incur fines of up to $10,000 per violation.

What’s the fine print?
Paid solicitors for charity should renew their bond annually along with their license, which can be done through a continuation certificate issued by the surety company.
