Why do I need this bond?

By posting this bond, professional solicitors and commercial co-venturers agree to comply with the provisions of Sections 18 to 35 of Chapter 68 of the General Laws of Massachusetts. If a professional fundraiser fails to do so, a claim can be made against the bond to provide reparation for damages. Unlawful acts according to these laws include but are not limited to:

  • acting without the necessary Certificate of Registration
  • failing to file necessary annual reports
  • making false statements about money donated
  • using any device or promise to gain money in a fraudulent manner
  • failing to keep all records of fundraising public

What’s the fine print?

The bond form must indicate whether the applicant is registering as a professional solicitor or a commercial co-venturer.

This type of bond expires annually on December 31 and must be renewed if the solicitor wishes to remain registered. If the bond is to be canceled, the surety must provide 30 days of written notice to the Massachusetts Office of the Attorney General.
