Professional fundraiser bond cost
The Georgia Securities and Business Regulation requires paid solicitors to post $10,000 surety bonds prior to soliciting contributions.
These bonds are subject to underwriting consideration, so the price you’ll pay depends on a review of your personal credit report. Qualified applicants could pay as low as $100 for their Georgia surety bond.
Why this bond
By posting a paid solicitor surety bond in Georgia, principals (solicitors) pledge to conduct business in compliance with all state laws as well as provisions of the Charitable Solicitation Act. If the principal fails to comply with these terms and the state or any person suffers financial loss as a result, the surety will cover all damages up to the full amount of the bond ($10,000). The principal must then reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.

Georgia paid solicitor bonds remain in full force and effect until canceled. These bonds expire on December 31, so your bond premium could be prorated depending on when you buy it. Our team of surety experts works hard to get you bonded according to your specific needs.
