Why do I need this bond?
Michigan professional fundraising surety bonds are put in place to ensure that professional fundraisers adhere to the rules and regulations listed in the Public Acts of 1975. Specifically, the bond ensures that the fundraiser will annually file a statement of past and current solicitation contracts with the Attorney General, maintain books and records that are available for inspection during reasonable business hours by both the surety and the Attorney General, and more.

What’s the fine print?
Michigan uniform professional fundraiser bonds expire on June 30, so your bond premium could be prorated depending on when you buy it. Our team of surety experts works hard to get you bonded according to your specific needs.
If the bond is canceled prior to the expiration date, the surety or principal (professional fundraiser) must provide written notice to the other party and the Charitable Trust Section, Department of the Attorney General 90 days prior to the desired cancellation date.
A continuation certificate from the surety must be submitted with each license renewal application.
