Why do I need this bond?
New Mexico professional fundraiser bonds are put in place to ensure that principals (professional fundraisers) fully comply with the provisions listed in New Mexico Charitable Solicitations Act, 57-22 et seq. and the rules and regulations adopted thereunder, as well as all of the laws of the state and the rules and regulations of the Registrar of Charitable Organizations.
If the principal fails to adhere to these terms, a claim can be filed against the bond for the repayment of harmed parties up to the full bond amount. The professional fundraiser, in turn, must reimburse the surety for any damages paid out.
