Complicated, ever-changing cause marketing compliance giving you a headache? Offload the cumbersome state-by-state filings and stay up-to-date with emerging regulatory & compliance laws with Change.
Emerging legislation is redefining what it means to be a charitable fundraising platform. Increasingly, common donation activations like percent-of-sale donations and round-ups at checkout have new compliance guidelines. Change manages compliance end-to-end so you can focus on running the most effective cause marketing campaigns.
The regulatory landscape for cause marketing campaigns is complex and ever-changing, especially when working with multiple charities. With Change, businesses enter into a single regulatory agreement with Our Change Foundation, our partner donor-advised fund (DAF). Our Change Foundation is the nonprofit on record, effectively streamlining regulatory agreements and nonprofit payouts to over 200,000 501(c)(3) organizations in the U.S. This significantly simplifies the regulatory process, reducing the administrative burden and allowing businesses to focus on impactful campaigns.
Professional fundraisers can bring in large amounts of critical funds for charities, but managing the complex legalities associated with them is often a barrier to entry. From charity sweepstakes to filing as a commercial co-venture, Change walks you through the process of ensuring compliance in every U.S. state.
With new laws come new definitions of what types of businesses qualify as charitable fundraising platforms. Change provides compliance solutions to all types.
A commercial co-venture (CCV) is a partnership where a business donates a portion of its sales to a nonprofit. It's an effective way to support a cause while promoting products. However, businesses must register as CCVs and adhere to reporting requirements in many jurisdictions.
Professional fundraisers, hired by nonprofits to raise money, can expand audience reach and fundraising efficiency. This can also include charitable sweepstakes, where donations are tied to a chance to win prizes. Both professional fundraisers and charitable sweepstakes are regulated by state laws to ensure transparency and protect donors.
Online fundraisers are internet-based campaigns that can reach a broad, diverse audience. This includes crowdfunding campaigns, donation pages, or online events. These fundraisers, while convenient, face unique regulatory challenges, especially if they facilitate donations to multiple charities.
No matter the donation activation or campaign type, Change has your compliance covered. Change is at the forefront of emerging laws – beginning with California AB 488 – so you can rest assured that you are compliant with updated legislation.
