Moreover there is a document (letters patent, letter of credence, appointment letter, manuscript or proclamation) that connects the person to an extra-official title or title of authority in a very extra-legal and official sense which only they possess.

The initial commercial license fee is $5,000 + 10% of fundraising income for any program or project where the title or the trademark is engaged as a headline or title, licenses do not expire and can be resigned each year. This is normally paid by the licensee's employer or can be paid over 18 months if the person is self-employed, the annual licensing fee to use the Goodwill Ambassador Mark by individuals is obtained by donating $250 or more per year to the Goodwill Ambassador Foundation, elaborating a transparent online biography, and sending an annual photograph to be considered an active member of the Foundation as of January 2022, only those who are already goodwill ambassadors can apply for an individual license. Membership in the Goodwill Ambassador Foundation is voluntary, only active volunteers may be selected to serve on the Goodwill Ambassador Commission (Operations Committee) based on their donation habits, experience and history.

All similar titles, descriptive names, trademarks, service marks, collective marks, and specific titles that have been registered are under a non-commercial Creative Commons user license with co-existent rights, official users or governmental users may not use the Marks to raise funds or engage in commercial activity. Any titles or uses that are not registered are considered unofficial uses are subject to precaution, question and speculation.
