Under Texas law, most charities and nonprofit organizations that are soliciting charitable donations from Texas donors are not required to register to solicit. There are exceptions, though, for organizations and their solicitors that fundraise for law enforcement, public safety or veterans causes.
Unlike most states, Texas has three solicitation acts that require charitable solicitation registration and renewal filings:
- Law Enforcement Telephone Solicitation Act (LETSA)
- Public Safety Solicitation Act (PSSA)
- Veterans Solicitation Act (VSA)
The Texas Secretary of State is the filing agency for documents required by the PSSA and VSA, and the Texas Office of the Attorney General is the filing office for registration filings required by LETSA. Additional information, forms, and FAQs can be found here: LETSA, PSSA, and VSA.
Below, you’ll find our infographic that highlights what you need to know about LETSA registration. (Similar infographics are also available for PSSA and VSA.)
