In order for your organization to assist a charity with a fundraising campaign or solicit contributions on their behalf, the charity needs to be registered to solicit contributions. You can click here to see if a charity is registered.
There are approximately 45 states which have laws governing nonprofits engaging in charitable solicitations. Most state laws require registration prior to the solicitation of contributions. Numerous counties and cities also have such laws. Failure to register in a timely fashion can lead to fines, civil suits, and states revoking any right to solicit contributions in the future.
If your client solicits contributions in any state or has you solicit on their behalf, they probably have to register in that state. Often charities do not know how to go about becoming registered. If one of your clients is not registered or wants to find a better way to stay registered, have them contact us.
