Doing Good Isn’t Always Easy: An Overview of Charitable Solicitation and Commercial Co-Venturer Laws

While joint fundraising for or promotion of a nonprofit organization may bring great intrinsic value to your company’s brand while advancing the greater good, such ventures often are subject to charitable solicitation and commercial co-venturer laws that can be a trap for the unwary. The presence of a fundraising or cause-marketing campaign on the internet may implicate laws in all fifty states. This program will provide an overview of these laws to help you identify legal problem areas in cause-marketing campaigns, and includes practical tips to help in-house counsel evaluate compliance risks before joining such a campaign.
