Communication: Do Not Call – Q: Am I allowed to make cold calls?

A: Yes, provided you are following provisions of the TSR and TCPA. A few key provisions include:

  • Identify yourself and your phone number before you make the pitch and disclose that the call is a sales of charitable solicitation.
  • You must disclose all material information about the goods or services you are offering and the terms of the sales.
