Virginia Administrative Code
Title 2. Agriculture
Agency 5. Department of Agriculture And Consumer Services
Chapter 610. Rules Governing the Solicitation of Contributions

2VAC5-610-35. Disclosures required of charitable or civic organizations.

A. Primary name. The charitable or civic organization shall include in all solicitations the primary name under which it is registered with the commissioner.

B. Use of another charitable or civic organization's name in an appeal by a charitable or civic organization. Pursuant to subsection C of § 57-57 of the Code of Virginia, if the charitable or civic organization uses the name of another charitable or civic organization in its own solicitation, it shall submit a consent to solicit form, prescribed by the commissioner, for each charitable or civic organization named in its own solicitation.

C. Preprinted return addresses. Pursuant to subsection L of § 57-57 of the Code of Virginia, the preprinted address on any return envelope, prepared under the direction of the charitable or civic organization and provided to a potential donor, that is not addressed to the charitable or civic organization's own primary address, shall include the name of the business located at the address on the return envelope in the following format:

ABC Charity
c/o XYZ Company
111 Main Street (#)
City, ST Zip Code

The name on line two may be the name of the professional fund-raising counsel or solicitor, a third party caging company or bank, a commercial mail-receiving agency, or other receiver, but, in any case, must be the name of the company that actually resides at the preprinted address on the return envelope. This requirement does not apply to mail addressed to a United States Post Office box rented from the U.S. Postal Service.
