Wyoming Fundraising Registration

Charitable Solicitation Registration and Compliance

Charitable solicitation is regulated on the state-level and the requirements vary by state. 41 states require charitable solicitation registration. Asking for donations by phone, mail, in person, and online subject a charity to registration requirements. Fundraising online is generally considered solicitation, including use of a "Donate Now" button on an organization’s website.

In nearly every state, charities are required to register before soliciting donations, regardless of whether funds are actually received. Some states require nonprofits to qualify with the corporations division and appoint a registered agent. In addition, most states require charities to include disclosure statements in their solicitations.

Overview of Wyoming Requirements

Wyoming does not require charitable solicitation registration. Out-of-state charities may, however, be required to qualify as a foreign nonprofit corporation with the Wyoming Secretary of State - Business Division and appoint a registered agent.
