Why do I need this bond?

By posting a South Carolina professional solicitor bond, principals (solicitors) pledge to comply with all provisions of the South Carolina Solicitation of Charitable Fund’s Act and with all applicable rules and regulations. Prohibited acts under this bond include:

  • making statements that funds are being solicited for a charity or that they will be used for charitable purposes when that is not the case
  • not placing each contribution in its entirety in an account at a bank or other federally insured financial institute in the account name of the charitable organization or sponsor
  • having access to withdraw any deposited funds from the account
  • not maintaining proper records of each solicitation
  • using the contributions collected for personal gains
  • and more

If the principal fails to comply with the terms of the surety contract, the bond protects any person who suffers financial loss as a result of the principal’s actions.
