Summer Salutations

June 30th State Charity Registration Deadlines

Did you know that not only do you need to file an extension with the IRS you need to also file for an extension of time to file with the Secretary of State or the Attorney General’s office for your Charity Registration Renewal or Annual Financial forms?

Eight states have due dates that are 6 months after the fiscal year end so for 67% of our customers they should be preparing to send their state renewals or preparing extensions for Kansas, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico and Tennessee.  

Alaska, North Dakota, and Wisconsin are not far behind with due dates beginning September 1st. If you are waiting for your financials to be ready, sign into your account today to print and send in your extension forms if not file your renewal packages today!!

Other states to be aware of are DC, FL, GA, NV, OK, RI, UT and WV which use the organization’s registration anniversary date as the renewal due date which is dependent on your previous registration.  Those dates can be found on your last registration approval letter from the state or the state’s website.

Audits

Did you know that 22 states have audit requirements??  Audit requirements begin at 200K for some state registrations and renewals while most average around 500K for an independent audit.  Total revenue is the trigger for most audits while contributions are the basis for other states and about half have some type of exclusion for government agency fees & grants as well as some “other types” of income.  Read the Blog

GuideStar and Simple Charity Registration are partnering to simplify the annual state registration process and save your nonprofit organization time and money; freeing up valuable resources for your mission. 

SimpleCharityRegistration.com makes it easy and affordable for nonprofits to manage the arduous annual state registration process. No more dozens of manila folders on your desk, a sea of extension letters and deadlines that don’t match with your federal filings. 

Simple Charity Registration, like TurboTax, determines which states you need to register with, asks the right questions, fills out all your forms and provides simple filing instructions. 

The webinar will provide an overview of how SimpleCharityRegistration.com works and how small and large nonprofits can save time and money using the software while freeing up valuable time to support your mission. 

Prior to the webinar, you may wish to create a free account and use the system to determine in which states you need to register. You are not billed until you print forms, so take a spin! Please be sure to read the Welcome page and complete both the State Checklist and State Registration Groups pages, as they determine the process for all the states. 

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

There is always great resources out there for your nonprofit organization but finding the time to do the research and attend the training is a different story. So, now that we have saved you some time registering your organization we thought we could go one step further and help you identify some people or organizations with some new strategies to help you to raise the funds that your programs need.  Here are some webinars that specialize in bringing attention to your mission and funding your programs that we think you will find helpful this week.

This webinar will explore the reasons why donors often stop giving to your organization and how you can change that.
