State Regulatory Compliance

The vast majority of states in the US have what are generally referred to as solicitation registration laws.  These laws generally provide that before a nonprofit may solicit a contribution in that state, unless an exception applies, the nonprofit must register with the state.  Our goal is to help your organization navigate the myriad requirements necessary to fundraise in each state in which solicitations are made.  State registration can be a challenging process with the required submission of numerous documents and detailed financial data. Our team helps take the complexity out of the process so that you can focus on raising funds to achieve your mission. The following is a list of services our team is prepared to offer your organization:
