Part III. Rules Governing a Professional Fund-Raising Counsel

2VAC5-610-60. Registration of a professional fund-raising counsel.

A. Documentation required for registration. Any professional fund-raising counsel subject to registration, pursuant to § 57-61 of the Code of Virginia, shall file with the commissioner a registration statement on a form prescribed by the commissioner, with all questions answered and with an officer's notarized signature. The completed registration statement shall include the following attachments:

1. Fee. An annual fee in the amount prescribed in subsection A of § 57-61 of the Code of Virginia, made payable to "Treasurer of Virginia"; and

2. Contracts. A signed copy of all current contracts with charitable or civic organizations soliciting in Virginia, as required by § 57-54 of the Code of Virginia.

B. 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 professional fund-raising counsel 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, 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.
