Course Description

Does every charity need to register to solicit funds from the public?


What regulations apply to online donations, special events, professional fundraisers, and cause marketing co-ventures?


The vast majority of states require that before a charitable nonprofit may ask someone in their state for a contribution – whether by letter, phone, email, social media, and sometimes even grant applications – the nonprofit must register with the appropriate state official to let the state know that the nonprofit is soliciting contributions (also known as fundraising). The separate state “charitable registration” laws are not uniform but inconsistent from state to state. Compliance is not only complicated but also burdensome and costly for charitable nonprofits. From determining the overlap of fundraising activities with where registration may be required and identifying the correct initial forms for each state, to filling them in and preparing checks for various filing fees, the process diverts significant staff time and financial resources.


This online CPE course will provide an overview of state charitable registration and reporting requirements for all types of fundraising. We’ll learn how to determine when and where registration and reporting is required.


In this online continuing education course, we’ll discuss exemptions, extensions, and state-mandated disclosure statements. We’ll move on to examine state-specific nonprofit financial statement requirements and the interplay between Form 990 and financial statements. Finally, we will discuss the role of the CPA in managing state charitable registration and reporting requirements.


Major topics covered in this online CPE webinar:


  • Forms of solicitation
  • Registration forms for charitable solicitation
  • Exemptions from registration
  • Renewal requirements
  • Fundraising registration approaches
  • Foreign qualification and the requirement for a registered agent
