Deregulation Of For-Profit Fundraisers In Arizona May Have Been Accidental

Printer-friendly version

Patrick McWhortor, president and CEO of the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits, said the bill was poorly drafted, and people were surprised by his opposition.

“They’d say, ’Geez whiz, wasn’t this a burdensome regulation on your members?’ And I said ‘No it was not burdensome, it was pretty straightforward,’” McWhortor said.

He agreed the law was outdated, but removing it completely was not the answer.

“We were claiming, and still do, that being one of the few states that does not have any kind of regulation for fundraising, would make us a haven for fundraising scams,” McWhortor said.
