A charitable organization that solicits donations on its own behalf is not required to register. The same is true for an officer, bona fide employee, or volunteer of a charitable organization soliciting donations for that charitable organization. A bona fide employee is a person who is a regular, non-temporary employee of a charitable organization under the direct and exclusive control of the organization. The term does not include a person that: (1) solicits contributions for a charitable organization under the direction, supervision, instruction, or employ of a professional solicitor, (2) is engaged or employed as a professional solicitor by any other person, or (3) solicits contributions for more than one charitable organization.
