In addition to charitable solicitation registration requirements, 25 jurisdictions require some form of disclosure statement when communicating with donors. Typically, disclosures must be included on written solicitations, donor confirmations, donor receipts, and donor reminders of contributions. However, each jurisdiction’s requirements differ.

Definition - Disclosure Statements
Language intended to be listed on solicitation materials or media providing details on a nonprofit’s charitable solicitation registration status. Additionally, directions on where to find more information on the entity’s mission and financials may need to be included. There are currently 25 jurisdictions that require them, each with their own expectations for content.

What must the disclosure contain?

The disclosure conveys where information about the nonprofit can be obtained, either from the jurisdiction’s charitable solicitation authority, or the nonprofit itself. Donors use disclosure statements to help make informed decisions about which organizations they give to. The chart below outlines requirements in the 25 jurisdictions that require some form of disclosure statement. Concerned that your disclosures aren’t up to code? Harbor Compliance can prepare your disclosure statements, so you can continue to fundraise with confidence.
