The Importance of State Registration

To protect the public and the sector from illegitimate fundraisers, forty-one states require nonprofits to register and report annually BEFORE they start fundraising. Since fundraising today occurs online, by the mail, and in person, most organizations trigger registration requirements in multiple states. Nonprofits that approach registration proactively avoid the risks of government fines and enforcement actions, and protect their reputation from damage. Registering nonprofits also establish themselves as an accountable, transparent best practice organization worthy of support.

Start building trust with donors by registering today.

Service Excellence is Standard

All clients receive the sector’s leading software and its leading service experience, which include features designed to help you save time and effort:

  • An assigned registration specialist who acts as your single point of contact, and completes all of your filings.

  • An optional Power of Attorney allows us to sign many applications for you.

  • No payments until your requirements research is complete, and your project plan is clearly defined.

Additionally, we offer a wide range of additional managed services to register professional fundraisers, fundraising consultants, cause marketing commercial co-ventures (CCVs), and more.

Harbor Compliance has been truly wonderful to work with. We’re a small organization, and if we had been forced to take on solicitation registrations, it would have pulled us away from important fundraising efforts. Harbor Compliance held our hand every step of the way and kept us informed and up to speed with every detail.
