ASK THE BUSINESS LICENSE GURU

By David Yount

Question:

“We are starting a non-profit corporation known as Project Restoration. We will be seeking donations via mail and internet. The location will be California. What licenses or permits will be required?”

Answer:

If you are soliciting donations from residents of all states, which is probably the case if you are collecting donations through the internet, you are required to register as a charity in every state that requires it. Currently, 43 states, include the District of Columbia, require you to register as a Charitable Organization and file annual financial reports with them. LicenseLogix can obtain and maintain all of your registrations for you. Contact us now to get started!
