									Are there requirements for an Iowa nonprofit that wants to fundraise outside of
Iowa?

Many states, under state solicitation laws, require that the nonprofit organization register
with the state before participating in fundraising within the state. In order to assist
nonprofit organizations in this registration process the National Association of State
Charities Officials and the National Association of Attorneys General have created the
Unified Registration Statement (URS). The URS “represents an effort to consolidate the
information and data requirements of all states that require registration of nonprofit
organizations performing charitable solicitations within their jurisdictions.” See The
Unified Registration Statement website available at: http://www.multistatefiling.org .

A copy of the multistate fundraising registration form is available at
http://www.multistatefiling.org/urs_webv302.pdf. This registration form is updated
regularly and therefore The Unified Registration Statement website
http://www.multistatefiling.org/, should be checked to ensure the most recent form is
used.
