The Chronicle of Philanthropy examines 'one-stop' charity websites, mostly run by for-profit companies. The story reveals that many charities are leery to authorize the on-line solicitors to raise money in their behalf because of the lack of applicable regulation. A major question is whether the websites qualify as professional solicitors under existing state laws. "Most state charity officials say that since there has been no outcry from donors, they are content leave on-line fund-raisers alone," the Chronicle reports.
