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. For additional background on fundraising registration required of nonprofit organizations see the following: - Mandatory Charity Registration Form article available at http://www.ccfbest.org/fundraising/charityform.htm - Current -Controversies: Out-of-State Solicitation and Regulation available at http://www.paperglyphs.com/nporegulation/foreign_solicitation.html#resources.
