Charitable Registration Requirements for Membership Organizations

Membership organizations that solicit contributions from their members typically need to register in those states where their members are located and in general have the same charitable solicitation registration requirements as other nonprofits. However, if a membership organization only solicits contributions from its members and not from the public in general, it can qualify for exemptions in most states and will typically only need to register in 15 states. This is considerably less than the roughly 40 states that require registration of a charity that solicits nationwide and which is not a membership organization. If you have any questions about the specific requirements or would like to have Labyrinth, Inc. help you with your registrations and exemptions, please email us at info@labyrinthinc.com or call us at 844-863-0915.
