Hawaii Fundraising Consultant and Solicitor State Registration Definitions

Every state names and defines fund raising professionals differently. For instance, Fundraising Consultant is similar to Fund-raising counsel but there may be different definitions. A Fundraiser is often the same as a Professional Solicitor, but not always.

"Professional fund-raising counsel" or "professional fundraising counsel" means any person who, for compensation, plans, conducts, manages, advises, consults, or prepares material for, or with respect to, the solicitation of contributions in this State for a charitable organization, but who actually solicits no contributions as a part of the person's services, and who does not employ, procure, or engage any compensated person to solicit contributions. The term shall not include a bona fide volunteer, salaried officer, or employee of a charitable organization.
