"We'll donate $1 to charity for every purchase of our product" is becoming a more common marketing tool, but did you know that almost half of the states have specific laws regulating these promotions?

This presentation is designed to assist brands, charities, and marketers and their counsel execute legally-compliant cause marketing campaigns with a particular emphasis on the laws involving commercial co-ventures (or charitable sales promotions). We will review the basics from identifying a commercial co-venture, state registration, mandatory contractual provisions, ad disclosures and reporting requirements.

You will also learn about the newly-enacted California "Supervision of Trustees and Fundraisers for Charitable Purposes Act" which becomes effective January 1, 2023 and significantly changes registration, contractual and disclosure requirements for many online charitable promotions.
