Organizations involved in commercial co-ventures must register in five states. The registrations generally renew annually, independent of campaigns.
Contract Submittals / Commencement Notices
In addition to registering the commercial co-venture, four states require cause marketers to file copies of their contracts or notify the state of their intent to begin soliciting before a campaign can start. Eight other states without registration filings require the same.
Seven states require cause marketers to file financial reports detailing the results of their campaigns.
Support for Both Sides of the Co-Venture
Before beginning a cause marketing campaign, businesses must meet state commercial co-venture requirements, and nonprofits must follow state charitable registration laws. State registration for commercial co-ventures can be complex, but you don't have to go it alone.
Charitable registration is a required prerequisite to running a commercial co-venture. We'll handle the initial fundraising registration if your organization isn’t registered. If it is registered, we’ll manage the renewals going forward and coordinate filings with your business partner.

Your dedicated Registration Specialist prepares and files all the following documents on your behalf. We track and manage renewal filings and related deadlines to keep you current.

As with most solicitations, state-mandated disclosure language must be included on materials used in commercial co-venture campaigns. Labyrinth, Inc. can provide the necessary language via our Dynamic Disclosures™ tool.

We also have partners to help you meet state surety bonding requirements quickly and affordably.
