Available NowProfessional Solicitor and Fundraising Counsel Online Filing System


We are very pleased to announce that the new Hawaii Professional Fundraiser Registration System is now available for your firm to begin submitting registrations for the July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2016 year.  Please note that because we are transitioning to an online registration system, every professional solicitor and fundraising counsel will have to complete an “initial registration” through this system regardless of whether the organization has submitted paper registration documents to our office for prior years.  Solicitors and fundraising counsel that have current contracts that extend past June 30, 2015 will need to upload a copy of the contract for that charity client when you complete your initial registration.

The link below will take you to the registration side of this system.  The public side of this system where members of the public will be able to search and view all of the registration materials is still under construction and should be launched within the next few weeks.

We believe that the system is very user friendly and intuitive as it follows the format and asks for the same information that the paper registration/renewal form and end of campaign financial reports did.   Below is a short guide and a longer user manual for the system to help you get started.
