Why Charitable Solicitation Disclosures Matter
Like your organization’s written appeals, your website, email newsletters, and email solicitations are powerful tools to generate mission awareness and raise funds.
Most states regulate traditional and online fundraising methods. In addition to annual charitable solicitation registration, 25 states require nonprofits to include state-specific disclosure statements on their website donation pages, solicitations, and donor correspondence. Disclosure statements serve to educate the public about the organization, its leadership, and financial standing.
State disclosure requirements change frequently, resulting in wasted capacity maintaining web pages with static text. Dynamic Disclosures offers a simpler, automated way to comply with the statutory language in every state.

Frequently Asked Questions

- In donor acknowledgements and follow-up requests such as pledge reminders
- In any other place where the residents of a given state may be prompted to donate

Organizations should take care to include and use all required disclosures where applicable.
