What are Professional Fundraiser Bonds?

A guarantee that you will play by the rules and perform your duties as a Professional Fundraiser licensee.

Three party instrument by which:

  1. One party – SURETY
  2. Guarantees that a second party – PRINCIPAL
  3. Will perform an obligation or duty owed to a 3rd party – OBLIGEE

KEY POINT – the Surety guarantees that a Professional Fundraiser licensee will abide by State laws.

Are Professional Fundraiser Bonds called anything else?

Depending on the state, the license/bond type has many different names:

  • Commercial Co-Venturer bond
  • Commercial Fundraiser bond
  • Commercial Telephone Solicitor bond
  • Fund Raising Counsel bond
  • Paid Solicitor bond
  • Professional Fund Raiser bond
  • Professional Fundraiser bond
  • Professional Solicitor bond
  • Public Safety Solicitor bond
  • Telephone Solicitation bond
  • Veteran’s Solicitor bond

Is a Surety Bond an insurance policy?

No.  A Surety Bond is a form of credit extended to you, and it is not insurance.  In traditional insurance, the risk is transferred to the insurance company.  In suretyship, the risk remains with the Principal.  You are the risk.  Again, the protection of the bond is for the Obligee.

Who does a Professional Fundraiser Bond protect?

The intent of the bond is to protect the Obligee/State and NOT the Principal/Fundraiser. 

What amount is a Professional Fundraiser Surety Bond?

Your bond amount will depend on your state.

A handful of states have Fundraiser bond amount requirements, some have multiple, and amounts range from $5,000.00 to $50,000.00. 

How do I qualify for a bond?

Character – Are you a company of integrity? 

Capacity – Are you experienced, knowledgeable, and capable of fulfilling your obligations as a MSB?

Capital – Are you capable of reimbursing the Surety in the event of a bond claim/loss?

How much does the Bond cost?

Your premium amount will be a percentage of the bond amount.

There is no one-size-fits-all answer; however, we continuously maintain some of the best facilities in the country.  Our exclusive bond programs available only through International Sureties are structured for a quick approval process and cost effective premiums.

Why does my credit matter when applying for a bond?

When a surety extends credit to you in the form of a bond, they are vouching that you will abide by the terms of the bond.  If you do not, you are responsible for reimbursing the Surety for any losses they may incur as a result of any claims on a bond issued on your behalf.  As such, the Surety must make certain that you are capable of reimbursing the Surety for any claim losses it sustains.
