Nonprofit Fundraising Registration

If your tax-exempt nonprofit solicits—or plans to solicit -- donations from individuals, corporations, or foundations then it is very likely that it needs to register in one or more states. Thirty-nine states plus the District of Columbia have charitable solicitation laws that require nonprofits that solicit charitable donations in their states to register, typically with the secretary of state or state attorney general. Each state's laws and requirements are different, including exemptions available, forms required, and fees. Find out the basics about nonprofit fundraising registration before your nonprofit does any fundraising.
