Every state has fundraising regulations, but for the most part they aren't ones that you're likely to violate if you run a straightforward fundraiser like a catalog sale, bake sale, spaghetti supper, etc., etc. The types of fundraisers that tend to be more strictly regulated include raffles and drawings, casino nights and anything else involving gambling, and asking for cash donations. I'm not familiar with Minnesota's specific rules, but check with the charities division of the state attorney general's office if you're concerned. Also, if you use a fundraising company, they should be able to help you get acquainted with the rules.
