The Vermont charitable solicitations bond may also be referred to as a professional fundraiser bond or a paid fundraiser surety bond.
The $20,000 surety bond requirement is set forth by the state’s Office of the Vermont Attorney General, which is charged with the licensing and registration of Vermont charitable entities.
Your charitable entity is automatically approved for the $20,000 Vermont charitable solicitations bond, with an annual premium of $300. There is no credit check for qualifying.
When you call us, we’ll just ask you the name and address which should appear on your bond. The name should match exactly any other paperwork you’ll be filing with the state in connection with licensing or re-licensing.
After payment of the $300 premium, our agency issues your bond to you immediately along with a Power of Attorney (POA) form. These are then mailed to you for signing and filing with the Attorney General.
Their address is:
Office of the Attorney General
109 State Street
Montpelier, VT 05602
Your $300 premium will is standard for one year and renews on the anniversary of your bond’s issuance.
Our agency also offers you the option to prepay your premium up to 3 years, offering you a savings at the same time.
The premium prepayment options and savings are as follows:
