Why do I need this bond?

West Virginia professional fundraiser bonds are put in place to ensure that principals (solicitors) comply with all terms stated in Chapter 29, Article 19 of the West Virginia Code. Unethical acts covered by this bond include:

  • exploiting the fact of registration to lead the public to believe that such registration constitutes an endorsement or approval by the Commonwealth
  • leading people to believe that money and funds are collected for charitable purposes when they indeed are not
  • using a charity’s name without written consent to do so
  • making representations that solicit contributions on behalf of a charitable or civic organization without first being authorized to do so by the charity
  • receiving a contribution greater than $5 in cash without a written receipt acknowledging such contribution

Specifically, the bond protects the state and individuals from financial loss if the principal fails to act ethically and lawfully while on the job.
