Filer Beware

Even a typical nationwide charitable registration can take a first-time filer up to 200 hours to complete. Add even more time and costs if your initial filings get rejected. And they might.

What you don’t know, can hurt you. When you are registering to solicit, some states will ask how long you’ve been soliciting  donations prior to filing. If you use the wrong form, you could pay thousands in “late fees”. 

If you’re determined to tackle your own nonprofit registrations, renewals, annual reports and more, you don’t have to do it without help. Explore our solutions and save.

DIY Done Better

We offer three levels of DIY services using a digital guide and digital tools:

Our first level of assistance, Nonprofit Fundraising Registration: Nolo’s 50-State Digital Guide, is an easy-to-understand digital resource that’s co-authored by Ronald J. Barrett of COGENCY GLOBAL. It’s updated quarterly with the latest regulations, state-by-state guide to registrations, exemptions, filing requirements, Internet fundraising rules, filing strategies and more. To download a free sample chapter of the Guide, click here

Our next two levels of assistance are powered by our digital tool, C3 Charitable Compliance Central® (C3 Central). This secure system uses questions to auto-complete the forms you need in each state. Then, file everything yourself with the included instructions, mailing addresses, information links, fee schedules and required attachment checklists. Your data is maintained year-to-year to ensure easy and efficient renewals.
