Commercial Co-Venture Filing Management Service (CCVMS)

A commercial co-venturer (CCV) is a for-profit company that works with charities to conduct a charitable sales promotion or event of any kind which is advertised to benefit a charitable organization. Common types of cause related marketing partnerships could include, share of sales campaigns, buy one give one campaigns, co-branded merchandise, checkout donation campaigns, sponsored charity events, employee volunteer programs, matching gift programs or social influencer campaigns.

There are a few states that require for-profit businesses to obtain a commercial co-venture license with two that require a surety bond as part of the process. Several states require co-venturers to submit copies of the executed contract in addition to requiring specific language to be included in the wording of each campaign contract. Many states also require a financial report to be submitted at the conclusion of each campaign. The report would disclose the funds that are raised during the campaign period and the amount released to the charity. Generally, each individual campaign would require a separate contract filing and financial report to be filed.
