The Importance of State Registration

Forty-one states require nonprofits to register and report annually to solicit contributions. Most organizations solicit by some combination of online, physical, and in-person activities, triggering registration requirements in multiple states, if not nationally. Nonprofits should take proactive steps to register and avoid the risks and costs associated with noncompliance.

Boards and leadership should treat registration as part of their duty of obedience to the organization. By registering, the organization further builds trust with donors and demonstrates accountability to the public it serves.

Choose Your Experience

Labyrinth is now part of the Harbor Compliance family! As a result, you can choose from two great solutions to meet the compliance requirements of each state.

We are here to support your journey and find the best solution for your nonprofit. We start by discussing the states where you fundraise, defining your objectives, and discussing a compliance roadmap for you and your board. Once we match the best approach, we’ll immediately start the registration process.

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.
