If your nonprofit organization solicits contributions in any state, you probably have to register there.

Currently 40 states have charity state registration requirements.

Each year several states change their laws and forms. We can help you keep up with these changes.

Failure to register in a timely manner can lead to fines, civil suits, and states revoking the right to solicit contributions in the future.

We file more state fundraising registrations than any other company

For over two decades, we have been assisting fundraisers in registering and staying in compliance with each state regulations. We ensure that a fundraiser is legally allowed to operate in each state where it assists charities with their fundraising.

If any of the following apply to your organization, then corporate registration and annual report filing may be required.

  • Does your nonprofit have an office or employee in a state?
  • Is your nonprofit incorporated or do you have foreign corporate authority in that state?
  • Do you do repeat business in the state in question?
  • Does your nonprofit issue Charitable Gift Annuities or are there plans to be included in a State Employee Campaign?

If your nonprofit organization solicits contributions in any state, you probably have to register there.

Nearly all states require organizations to have a registered agent in the state as part of their corporate registration file (foreign or domestic). Some states even require a registered agent in the state as part of the charity registration.

Labyrinth, Inc. can setup Registered Agent Services for your organization in any state at very competitive rates.

Once a Registered Agent is appointed, the Registered Agent information must be kept up to date. Failure to appoint and maintain accurate Registered Agent information could result in involuntary administrative dissolution of the organization in its state of domicile and/or have its registration as a foreign corporation in other states revoked.
