Nonprofits organizations are an increasingly crucial part of our society. They provide help to the needy, funds for good causes, education for living skills, social and medical services, environmental advocacy and list goes on. Today nonprofits face powerful accountability pressures. Approximately 40 states have laws governing charitable solicitations.
Keeping up with state statute changes is time consuming and requires specific expertise. Our legal counsel tracks state and federal laws on a daily basis. Noncompliance can be costly in many ways; late filing fees, civil and criminal penalties, forced return of donations, loss of ability to raise funds in a state and even loss of tax exempt status. Compliance is not optional; it is law.
Clearly Compliant is your charity registration solution. During the assessment phase we help determine in which states your nonprofit needs to register. We then ensure your nonprofit is compliant with each state’s regulations to include initial registration, annual renewal, financial reporting, extensions and other mandatory filing requirements.
Fees, payment methods, due dates, signatures, required notarizations and a variety of filing facts vary by state. Suffice to say that nonprofit charitable registration compliance is not an easy task to manage. Focus on your mission; let Clearly Compliant manage your charity registrations.
"Thank you and your team for all your hard work on behalf of KINDLE these past months and for walking us so carefully and thoughtfully through the first round of state registrations. It has been so pleasant and easy to work through this process with you. At our recent KINDLE Board meeting, I expressed to them how grateful I am that we chose not to tackle this in-house, and how professional and helpful you and Clearly Compliant have been throughout the process. I have learned so much from you and from the process."
"Sarah knows the charity registration business! She was extremely helpful to His Hands Free Medical Clinic when we needed to make sure we were compliant."
"I can’t imagine what it would have taken for us to accomplish 32 initial state registrations on our own. Thank you Clearly Compliant."
"Thank you for your thoroughness! Clearly Compliant – you are fantastic!"
"Clearly Compliant was invaluable in our review of the requirements for solicitation registration and in guiding us toward a reasonable, defensible and legal approach. We received constructive and thoughtful guidance about how to proceed. Thank you for advising us."
"We not only saved dollars in staff time by enlisting Clearly Compliant, but gained the many resources and knowledge offered by their staff. We appreciate CC's quality, integrity and the integral role they play in our fiduciary responsibilities to our donors."
"Community Health Free Clinic has been with Clearly Compliant for over seven years, and I am so glad we don't have to worry about charity registrations! Generous folks from across the country provide important financial support to the clinic. Staff can focus on serving people who need medical care, not the administrative burden of fundraising compliance."
