What is a paid solicitor?

A paid solicitor is a person who is paid to solicit contributions in Colorado.  This includes any services connected to soliciting contributions, such as employing or contracting with other paid persons to solicit contributions.

There are a few exemptions [1], including bona fide volunteers, officers or employees of certain types of tax-exempt organizations [2].  Lawyers, investment counselors, or bankers who advise a person to make a charitable contribution are also exempt. 

Anyone who mails fundraising literature is considered to be a paid solicitor, unless that person's only responsibility is the printing and mailing of literature. This exemption is intended to cover people in the printing industry.


Why do I need an account?

You must create an account before registering as a paid solicitor.  The account will tie your filings together, and only people with access to this account can file documents or make changes to your records. 


How do I create an account?

  • Go to "Create a Paid Solicitor Account".

  • Enter the authorized officer for the paid solicitor.  What is an authorized officer?

  • Enter an email address.  Our office will use this email address to contact the paid solicitor about the account and any filings.  Examples might include resetting a password or sending reminders about filing deadlines.

  • Enter a daytime telephone number.
