It seems that after each quarterly business meeting, companies' marketing departments think of new, creative variations on classic cause-related marketing techniques. From charitable sales promotions and commercial co-ventures to matching donation programs, sweepstakes, raffles, online auctions, and more, both nonprofits and companies need to be aware of their responsibilities under federal, state, and even local laws when engaged in these promotional activities.

In this program, two Venable attorneys whose practices focus on the related areas of promotions and charitable fundraising explain the ins and outs of this constantly evolving area of law, so that when your nonprofit is presented with a novel twist on a familiar fundraising method, both you and the promotion sponsor will be well equipped to navigate this highly regulated space.

Topics that will be discussed during this program include:

  • Overview of the Regulatory Landscape (Charitable Solicitations)
  • Charitable Sales Promotions (CCVs)
  • Customer Donation Programs
  • Free Action Campaigns
  • Charitable Raffles
  • Sweepstakes
  • Auctions
