Kansas 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 raiser" means any person, who is retained under contract or otherwise compensated by or on behalf of a charitable organization primarily for the purpose of soliciting funds. Professional fund raiser includes a person who plans, manages, advises, consults or prepares material for solicitations. Professional fund raiser shall not include any bona fide employee of a charitable organization who receives regular compensation and is not primarily employed for the purpose of soliciting funds, or an attorney, investment counselor, or banker who in the conduct of such profession advises a client to make a contribution.
