Nonprofits organizations are an increasingly crucial part of our society. They provide help to the needy, funds for good causes, education for living skills, social and medical services, environmental advocacy and list goes on. Today nonprofits face powerful accountability pressures. Approximately 40 states have laws governing charitable solicitations.
Keeping up with state statute changes is time consuming and requires specific expertise. Our legal counsel tracks state and federal laws on a daily basis. Noncompliance can be costly in many ways; late filing fees, civil and criminal penalties, forced return of donations, loss of ability to raise funds in a state and even loss of tax exempt status. Compliance is not optional; it is law.
Clearly Compliant is your charity registration solution. During the assessment phase we help determine in which states your nonprofit needs to register. We then ensure your nonprofit is compliant with each state’s regulations to include initial registration, annual renewal, financial reporting, extensions and other mandatory filing requirements.
Fees, payment methods, due dates, signatures, required notarizations and a variety of filing facts vary by state. Suffice to say that nonprofit charitable registration compliance is not an easy task to manage. Focus on your mission; let Clearly Compliant manage your charity registrations.
